Partition or Settlement by Gupta

V7_CH55

11. Partition or Settlement.?If the deed shows that the parties have
shares as per their respective entitlement as full owner, the document is
a partition deed and not a settlement deed?see Ravikirthi v Kagathpala
AIR 2005 Kant 194.
12. Conditional settlement if confers title to settlee.?A conditional
transfer or a settlement accompanied by conditions is not unkown to the
law of real property.  It is permissible in law to annex or encumber any grant
or alienation with condition or limitation which will operate and the court
will give effect to it unless there is some provision of law which annuls or
invalidates such conditions, restraint or limitation?Subhegowda v
Thimmegowda AIR 2004 SC 2428; see also Philip John v Commr. of I.T.
AIR 1964 SC 587; Raj Bajrang v Thakurain Bakhtraj AIR 1953 SC 7.
13. Document whether Will or Settlement.?A document was de-
scribed as ?gift settlement deed?, an uncommon nomenclature indeed. The
executor had reserved her right over rental income during her life but in all
other respects she had transferred her interest. It was no where stated in
the said instrument that the bequeath will take effect after her death. It is
?settlement deed? and not a  ?will??Shanmugam v N.R. Mani AIR 2004 Mad
178.
14. Stamp duty.?A deed of settlement is chargeable to stamp duty
under Article 58, Schedule I of the Indian Stamp Act, 1899. The duty is the
same as on a Bond (under Article 15)  for a sum equal to the amount or value
of the property settled as set forth in the deed. However, reference to be
made to the respective State Amendments to the Schedule of the Stamp
Duty applicable to a particular case.
15. Registration.?According to sec. 17(1)(b) of the Indian Registration
Act, 1908, a non-testamentary instrument which purports or operates to
create, declare, assign, limit or extinguish, whether in present or in future,
any right, title or interest, whether vested or contingent, of the value of one
hundred rupees and upwards, to or in immovable property will be compul-
sorily registrable. Therefore, a deed of settlement will be compulsorily
registrable, if the  value of the immovable property settled is Rs.  100 or
upwards.
