Abstract: Let $ {X_0}$ be an algebraic variety, and $ (\chi ,\,\Sigma )$ its versal deformation. Now let G be an affine algebraic group acting algebraically on $ {X_0}$. It gives rise to a definite linear G-action on the tangent space of $ \Sigma $. In this paper we establish that if G is linearly reductive then there is an equivariant G-action on $ (\chi ,\Sigma )$ which induces given G-action on the special fibre $ {X_0}$ and its linear G-action on the tangent space of the formal moduli $ \Sigma $. Furthermore, such equivariant G-structure is shown to be unique up to noncanonical isomorphism.
