it is not possible to answer or provide a better advice to you with the information provided by you. generally to cancel a deed of gift, a cancellation deed is prepared. in order to gift the same property to another person, only a new gift deed has to be prepared. it is recommended to you to have a face to face interaction to serve you better regarding the same.

The deed of gift if registered, cannot be revoked at the instance of the donor immediately. The donor has/have to file a suit challenging the said deed of gift on the ground of either misrepresentation or fraud or coercion or undue influence or mistake in other words he/they shall have to portray a case before the Court that the gift was not done on his/their free consent(s), if that is proved before the Civil Court, the deed of gift can be declared to be invalid and inoperative. All the best. Regards
