After deed of family settlement has been executed by you, your father is absolute owner of said property. I presume said document is duly stamped and registered .

He is free to execute gift deed in your favor. No limitation period arises in such a case . However if ownership is retained by donor and possession is not handed over to done gift would be invalid . If at all your father wants to retain the property for his use he can make a will in your favor.
