I have a query. The court matter I'm fighting for years is going to be settled in a couple of days. I will receive compensation amt of 29lks. My question is
1. If I receive the amt by DD, and make an FD in bank, what tax, if any, will be applicable to me on the principle amt ie 29lk.
2. The said amount will be deposited in the account of my mother who is a housewife, senior citizen who has a PAN but hasn't filed her IT return yet. What if she doesn't file her return after depositing the amount in FD in her name?
3. If tax is applicable on the principle amount, what methods I can follow to minimise it?
Thanks in advance

What is the relationship between you and the person who's paying the settlement amount? if that person doesn't fall in the definition of relatives, these 29 lakhs will be charged to tax under the head income from other sources

Actually it goes like this. My opposing party in the dispute is due for settlement (let's name it A) is my relative but not close one. He has another land dispute going on with my wife's brother (let's say B). My opposing party pressurised my wife's brother to pressurise me to settle the my dispute (A) with him. Only then he will end the dispute with wife's brother (B)
Now my compensation amount will be paid by my wife's brother by DD from his own bank account. There will be nothing that I will receive directly from the opposing party. This means whatever I will receive will be paid to me by my wife's brother.
What rule says that receiving money from relative isn't taxable? (section number, just for my knowledge)

you should make gift deed for entire amount of rs. 29 lakhs & take this amount by dd/cheque/neft/rtgs. you also take this amount in your own account. & show this amount under the exampt income in income tax return form.
