The Indian Trusts Act, 1882

 

6. Creation of trust

 

Subject to the provisions of Section 5, a trust is created when the author of the, trust indicates with reasonable certainty by any words or acts (a) an intention on his part to create thereby a trust, (b) the purpose of the trust, (c) the beneficiary, and (d) the trust-property, and (unless the trust is declared by will or the author of the trust is himself to be the trustee) transfers the trust-property to the trustee.

 

Illustrations

 

(a) A bequeaths certain property to B, “having the fullest confidence that he will dispose of it for the benefit of’ C. This creates a trust so far as regards A and C.

 

(b) A bequeaths certain property to B “hoping he will continue it in the family”. This does not create a trust, as the beneficiary is not indicated with reasonable certainty.

 

(c) A bequeaths certain property to B, requesting him to distribute it among such members of C s family as B should think most deserving. This does not create a trust, for the beneficiaries are not indicated with reasonable certainty.

 

(d) A bequeaths certain property to B, desiring him to divide the bulk of it among among C’s children. This does not create a trust, for the trust-property is not indicated with sufficient certainty.

 

(e) A bequeaths a shop and stock-in-trade to B, on condition that he pays A’s debts and a legacy to C. This is a condition, not a trust for A’s creditors and C.
