Gift Deed format and applicable stamp duty in Bangalore - Zippserv 2019

What is gift deed?

A Gift Deed is a transfer of an immovable property, voluntarily from the Donor to the Donee without the involvement of any monetary consideration. The person who is gifting the property is the Donor and the one accepting the gift is the Donee.

The Donor should be the absolute owner of the property before initiating the Gift deed conveyance. Once the Donee accepts the gift being offered by the Donor, the Donee will become the absolute owner of the said property. The Donor will cease to have any rights over the property. The property details should be captured in the Schedule of the property.

In case there are any liens or mortgages on the property, a no objection certificate (NOC) from the bank would be required to register the Gift Deed.

Gifting to a family member like father, mother, husband, wife, son, daughter, daughter-in-law, brother, sister, and grandchildren attract the least amount of stamp duty.

      Dear Prashanth,

      As far as your query is concerned, a B Khatha property cannot be converted to A Khatha as of now as the same is pending consideration before the Supreme Court. The State Government had introduced Akrama Sakrama in order to provide an opportunity to the land owners to rectify the illegality. However, foreseeing that many land developers who have encroached upon lakes, storm water drains etc., could get away by paying nominal penalty, the same was challenged. Until the status of Akarama Sakrama is decided, you cannot pay betterment charges and obtain an A-Khatha. I hope that rectifies your query.
