only executing and registration of the gift deed is not in all to conclude the gift. The main ingredients of gift i.e. the declaration followed by delivery and acceptance of the gifted propertry by the donee conclude the gift and there after it cant be revoked unilaterally by the donor. So chheck for these elements in your gift deed and if they are found alright, you need not worry, the revocation doesnt stand in the eye of law.

Once a gift deed is registered it can not be revoked by the donor except on the grounds of compulsion, fraud etc as defined in section 11 of the Contract act. The gredients of a valid gift are

declaration, posseession,acceptance
