1. Mr. khuswah husband can gift to his wife without any limit ...because wife is covereed in the defination of relative u/s 2(41) of IT act 1961....gift to relative is not cover by the provisons of sec 56...limit of of rs. 50000 will be applicable in case of non relative relations.

 

2. provisons of clubbing of income shall be applicable in this case because as per sec 64 income from cash transfer will be clubbed in the hands of husband not in the hands of wife

yes.. Sec. 56(2)(vii) covers only non relatives gifts, & husband is not covered by such section, since husband is the relative u/s. 2(24) of IT Act. He can give gift of any amount to his relative covered u/s. 2(24) without any limit.

One correction to above answer by Vishal- The concept as ans by vishal for Defintion covering husband under the four ambit of the definiton is correct but sec for relative is not sec 2(24) but its explaination to proviso to clause vii of section 56(2).

Sec 2(24) defines income taxable under income tax act,1961.

1. Mr Rana, you said if cash is given by husband than sec 64 is applicable. I want to know if payment is made by cheque than sec 64 is applicable or not

2. If gift given by one person to other person i.e. relative is exempt under sec 56, than is it compulsary to show details in assessable & ITR

I have a similar query. My wife is a proprietor. I gave her Rs. 1 lac from my salary savings for her business use. Should i make it an interest free loan or gift to her.

If it is a loan, then she can use the amount in business and pay back the principle amount. There will be no tax liability.

If its a gift, how will the income produced from this amount be calculated (in order to club with my income).

If i create a gift deed for this tranfer (done online) what wil be the tax implication for both of us?

Once irrevocably gifted to wife naturally it is her personal property and so it canot be clubbbed with husband income as that gift is legal transfer under  all substantial laws. when so she is the sole rightful owner of the gifted cash and under what imaginatiary rules you can club with husband's income once gifted away?

so if any rules or income tax laws are one every year changes as a revenue generator but certainly not a substantial law any more so IT laws and rules need to biw before substantial laws is it not dear Rana?
