@ kami kingrani - Read the meaning of Relative and who all come under relatives and you will solve any queries regarding gifts ....

Answer to yo question - Any gift recieved  from relative is exempt , grandpa comes under relative so its exempt.

Gift received from relative are exempt u/s 56 (2) (7). Grandfather comes under relative so it's exempt. Bt remember grandfather's brother is not your relative. If u receive gift from him then it will be taxable.
