The Indian Trusts Act, 1882


78. Revocation of trust


A trust created by will any be revoked at the pleasure of the testator.


A trust otherwise created can be revoked only –


(a) Where all the beneficiaries are competent to contract by their consents


(b) Where the trust has been declared by non-testamentary instrument or by word of mouth- in exercise of a power of revocation expressly reserved to the author of the trust; or


(c) Where the trust is for the payment of the debts of the author of the trust, and has not been communicated to the creditors at the pleasure of the author of the trust.




A conveys property to B in trust to sell the same and pay out of the proceeds the claims of A’s creditors. A reserves no power of revocation. If no communication has been made to the creditors, A may revoke the trust. But if the creditors are parties to the arrangement, the trust cannot be revoked without their consent.
