Until and unless the gift deed is cancelled by the appropriate court you are the owner of a flat. You can register your name on the property tax and also on the electricity bill. There is no restriction for recording your name in the property tax or electricity bill. Property tax bill or electricity bill is not the proof title of the said property.
