I want to receive Rs.100000 as gift from my married daughter.Does the term lineal descendant include female child also as per section 2(41). Infact the word any has been used in section 2(41) but is it necessary to examine the provisions as per Hindu law.

I think it is treated as gift and added in the head of income from other sources

Hi alsivasankar,
As per Hindu Laws the term lineal descendant does not include female married child

I have doubt, whether the term 'lineal ascendant' or 'lineal descendant' will be determined as in common paralne or as per Hindu Laws.
