Question 2):


Every monetary related transactions are taxable unless some exemptions in the cases of special
occasions. The tax exemption will be available only up to some limit and above that, it is mandatory to
pay taxes by every individual under income tax act.

Concepts and Application:

In the given scenario, Mr abhishek now only passed MBBS and practicing as doctor in his own way. He
has been given with a gift of Rs 51000 as cash by one of his father’s friend. As per the section of 56(2),
any gift received more than rupees fifty thousand is taxable unless it is from his/her relatives on the
occasion of marriage.

The relatives can be anyone who are related to their family. The gift can be anything in the form of
money, immovable and movable properties without consideration or partial consideration.

In the first case, Mr abhishek received the gift as cash and it is more than Rs 50000. Also it is not
received from his relative. So the condition for exemption is not satisfied. Hence the gift received is
taxable and Abhishek has to pay the tax for the same.

This income will come under the head of income from other sources. It is for the entire financial
transaction and it is for one time transaction. If it was received from his relatives, it would be exempted
from income. Also if it was received at the occasion of his marriage, it could be taken as exemption.

For example, if he is getting the same gift from any on his cousins and amount exceeding Rs 50000, that
gift will not come under taxable income and no matter the amount size and occasion.

In the second scenario, he has been gifted with a plot of land by one of his parents as a toke of
appreciation for his dedication and all. As per the section 56(2), the plot of land will come under
immovable property. It is also taxable gift if it is given without consideration. For this case, it is not
mentioned that it was given under any consideration or not. Also it did not declare any stamp duty
details on the same.

For example, if the immovable property is given without consideration and the stamp duty exceeds Rs
50000 in a financial year, it will be taxable. But if it is given with consideration and stamp duty does not
exceeds on the same, it will be exempted from tax. Also there is another case that, the immovable
property will be given under will. Then it is not taxable. But if the rent is received by you, it will be
taxable as per the act.

Also it is compulsory to have a gift deed while gifting anyone with any money, immovable and movable
properties. All the details are to be filled and maintained in order to submit on the occasion of tax filing
for the financial year.

So in both situations, the gifts received by Mr Abhishek come under taxable income unless the above
conditions are not there. It should be treated as income from other sources and he should add with his
total annual income for filing of the same.


Any gifts exceeding five thousand rupees are taxable if some conditions are not met. So make sure that
gifts are considered and taken carefully for the calculation of taxes.
