1. Mother is indeed a family member. 

2. The gift deed made by you in her favour will attract a very nominal stamp duty as compared to a gift deed wherein the donee is not a family member.

Hello,
As mother is one of the nearest blood relation, gift deed made in her favour will attract minimal stamp duty as opposed to a non family member which would be as good as a sale transfer.

It is however always advisable to make an enquiry at the office of the sign registrar of your area  to get the exact percentage of stamp duty payable.
