I have a query regarding a gift deed. My father-in-law wants to gift his flat to my wife vide gift deed, but he stays abroad. Can he execute the gift deed in the Indian embassy over there?
The other option is he has already registered a power of attorney in his son’s name to sell the property, so can his son come to India and execute the gift deed?
