Dear Experts

The budget announced yesterday introduced changes to Gift tax for NRIs.  It says that the gifts given by Indian residents to non-resident Indians are taxable as regular income.  

What about gift received by a father(in India) from NRI son ( working abroad) for parental maintenance.   Is there any change to receipt into India ? 

Thanks for the time & attention.  Regards - Ignesius
