1. If you become a co-owner of the property then you will be able to transfer it to your sister only with the consent of the bank as a charge is created in favour of the mortgagee as long as the mortgage remains in existence. 

2. Since the stamp duty is not uniform throughout India only a local lawyer can tell you what it is in TN.

Hi, you can purchase the property in the joint name and after repayment of the loan you can execute gift deed in favour of your sister so that she will become absolute owner of the property.

2. Normally the gift deed will not cost you much it will be with in Rupees 10,000/- apart from professional fee of the advocate.

1. The transaction plan is perfectly in order.

2. After the loan is repaid and the mortgage is released, you can register a gift deed duly conveying the title of 50% share of the said property in favour of your sister.

3. The Registration fee and stamp duty depends on the value of the property dealt with and the registration fee also varies from state to state. For registering a gift deed the stamp duty to be paid is just half percent of the value of the property. the Registration fee charged in W.Bengal is 1.1% of the value of the said property.

The maximum stamp duty payable on the instrument of settlement within the family members is Rs. 25,000/- and the registration charges shall be Rs. 4,000/- in Tamilnadu. 
 You can buy the property in the joint names, can make her a co-applicant for the purpose of loan and after discharge of entire loan, you can execute a registered settlement deed in her favor in respect of your share in the property.
