Can a General Power of Attorney (GPA) holder gift property to self?






Yes, General Power of Attorney (GPA) holder can do Gift deed

When you draft a GPA for gift deed execution, important to mention that GPA is application for GIFT DEED execution. To be more specific, mention the donor and donee details in GPA.

Let me give a real example of executing gift deed through GPA, Mother Ms. Sumathi gave GPA to daughter Ms.Shilpa. Below is the image of registered GPA
