My father-in-law wants to gift about 4 lakhs to my wife (married since 1985). My wife is a house wife and has a PAN card of her own. I read in Hindu Business line (August 13, 2007) that cash gift received from blood relatives are exempt from any tax irrespective of the amount. Please clarify.
If it is proximity of blood (Relations) that loan can be treated as Gift. Eventhough it is from outside parties that should not exceed more than 50k
