What is a Gift Deed?

With a gift deed, the lawful owner of a property (donor) can transfer it to another party (done) without any monetary consideration. A gift deed must be signed by the donor, attested by 2 witnesses, and they should be registered. Charges will vary in each state as stamp duty on gift deed must be paid on the value of the property. Generally, such gifts are given by one family member to another, but there is no such restriction. However, gifts from relatives (and wedding gifts) are exempted from tax.
