An oner­ous gift has both ben­e­fits and li­a­bil­i­ties at­tached to it and it is up to the per­son re­ceiv­ing it to ac­cept or re­ject it in to­tal­ity

Oner­ous gifts are ac­com­pa­nied by cer­tain charges that are im­posed by the donor (giver of the gift) on the donee (re­cip­i­ent of the gift)

It is based on the prin­ci­ple that ‘he who ac­cepts the ben­e­fit of a trans­ac­tion must also ac­cept the bur­den of the same’

Once an oner­ous gift has been ac­cepted, sub­ject to the con­di­tions im­posed, it can­not be dis­claimed
