your facts are silent as to the reason for the gift. please state that. if it is given during the marriage, u don't need a gift deed.
Madam, The amount was gifted 5 years after marriage. As I am currently investing in an under construction property jointly with my wife, the gifted amount was used by my wife to finance one of the payment installment. Kindly advise on the requirement of a notarised/plain gift deed and any tax implication.

It is exempted from tax. You may make a gift deed on a stamp paper merely stating that such an amount had been gifted by the father. Both father and daughter shall sign and daughter shall make a statement that she received such amount as gift. Get a simple notarisation.
