The lawful owner of a property can transfer it to another party without any monetary consideration through a gift deed. All such deeds must be signed by the donor, attested by 2 witnesses and then registered. Charges will vary in each state as stamp duty 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 exempt from tax

There is no prescribed form of a will. In order for it to be effective, it needs to be properly signed and attested. It must be initialed by the testator at the end of every page and next to any correction and alteration.
The registration of a document provides evidence that the proper parties had appeared before the registering officers and the latter had attested the same after ascertaining their identity.
A will is to be registered with the registrar/sub-registrar with a nominal registration fee. The testator must be personally present at the registrar’s office along with witnesses.
No stamp duty is required to be paid for executing a Will or a codicil. A will, therefore, need not be made on stamp paper.
If a certificate is granted in a foreign country, by an Indian representation accredited to that country, it should be stamped in accordance with the Court Fees Act 1870 to have the same effect in India as a certificate granted in India.
