Mortgage is made as a security for the repayment of a debt-
present or past, an interest of the owner in the property
mortgaged is to some extent parted or transfer.The physical
possession of the property may or may not be parted.

in case of pledge the physical possession of the property
is parted and the pledgee has a right to sell the pledged
item if the conditions of the pledge is violated.

in case of Hypothecation whcih is alwasys for moveable
property the owner of the Goods will continue to enjoy the
possession of the same untill and unless the other person
takes action to seize the goods Hypothecated.
