Can you add nominee(s) to your property?


Hi, I have bought a property and I am the sole owner. The property construction is complete and we have been given possession of the same. Registration of the property would be done in next 1-2 months. I wanted to add my parents as nominee so that in case something happens to me, my parents would get the property after me. Can you please let me know, what is the procedure of adding nominee to the property and if its allowed?
