Question regarding gift deed

This question is regarding gift deed.

A and B are husband and wife and has 5 childrens includes 2 son 3 daughter. B(Wife) has gifted house to his husband(A) through Gift deed. So if Husband Died, i have two questions here.

1) who will be the owner of the house is the wife or it will be belongs to all the childrens.

2) Is the gift deed will get cancelled automatically and ownership goes to B(Wife)?

Note: There is no clause mentioned in the gift deed stating if A person died , ownership go back to B.

Can someone please guide us on the same.


Thank You.

If  A and B are Hindu and A died intestate then according to Hindu Succession Act gifted property will be divided equally among wife and five children of A.Each legal heir of A will get 1/6 share in property.

Once wife gifted her undivided share to his husband,and if the husband left his wife and sons and daughters,then if they born as a Hindu or Christian,all the legal heirs are entitled to get equal shares.After the kife time of the husband.
