Dear Karthik
In your case as the property is self acquired, you can very well transfer the same in whose ever name so you desire, your son included and your wife cannot claim any right over the same. But to transfer a property in the name of a minor has it's own complications as you will not be able to sell the property as and when you require as you will need the court's permission before you sell the same and under the strict guidance of the court until the minor child becomes major. Hence we always advice our client against transferring or acquiring any properties in a minor's name if the same can be avoided
