gift deed - validity

Dear Members,

Can any body suggest me about the validity of Registered Gift Deed. Whether the gift deed once registered can be taken back or cancelled by the Donor? Please advice me at the earliest.

Thanking you.


Gift deed can't be cancelled by Donor and if at all it had to be cancelled, it shall be before the court of law


  GIft deed once registered before sub registrar/registering authority may not be cancelledby the donor.It may not be taken back. It may  only be cancelled by competent court of law / civil court.


Dear friend,




The gift deed in case of immovable property can not be revoked by the donor once executed or registered with the register office. It can be nullified only through court under certain circumstances like the donor executing the gift deed forced by donee  by way of fraud, misrepresentation,coercion and undue influence, but the onus of proving the exceptional circumstances under which the giftee was executed lies with the donor.




it apprears that gift relates to immovabale property and once u registered it u can not revoke it. go trough the gift deed u declare that it is irrevocable in the gift deed itself . court matter also cannot help u.


i am in full agreement withthe advice given by KRISHNAN VENKATACHALAM

Dear  sir,


Being an advocate you might have been awere that  validity of Registered Gift deed .


For  regisration of gifts the rule is not one and the same for Hindus and Muslims. After the gift was acted upon in normal cases the gift is irrevocable.




Try to understand what is the object of GIFT in TP ACT.Wether gift  is revocable? ,If the very purpose of gift is defeated i.e if the donee is a trust if the trust did not fullfill the purpose of gift and used the property other than purpose mentioned in the deed it can be revocable as it is one of the exceptional cicumstances for revocation and also fallow  as per the advice given by Mr Krishnan Venkatachalam with regard to procedure of revocation.. 

Advocate Profession

The register gift deed cannot be revoke by the donor but it has to be nullified by the court o law in certain circumstances, the donee comitted a fraud for creating and fabricating donor's signature and misrepresentaion, mischief, coercion, undue influence or complesion but theallegations are proved by the donor.
