Gifts received by HUF from its members are exempted from Income Tax under Section 56(2)(vii) of the act. As per Hindu law, HUF is inclusive of all family members from a common ancestor, hence the limit of 50,000/- does not apply on HUF, excluding cash gift of more than Rs 50,000/-. No clubbing.

A gift of shares to family member as well as the HUF will be tax exempt as it would be classified as 'property received from a relative' which is specifically exempt on account of section 56 (2)(x) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.
