Buy price of gifted shares

I have two queries. First, your platform suggests that buy price and buy date will be considered as of the previous buyer. However, the zerodha customer executive denies it and maintain that day of gifting shares will will je considered. Please clarfy. Second, in case of gifting shares at zerodha platform, will zerodha automatically count the holding perriod.
