if the person indulge himself in the business of forex trading such income shall be taxable under the head "Business Income".  In other case it may be covered under the head " Income from other sources". Tax rate applicable applicable to individual is charged on such income.

Agreed with Ratan.

If it is your vocation that you do on a continuous basis then income from business / profession. If it is one off transactions then income from other sources.

The tax rate depends how you organise yourself. If you trade as individual / proprietorship, your income is taxed as per your slab rates. If you organise the business as a partnership firm or company, applicable rates for those entities apply.

IN India only person authorised by Reserve Bank of India named as "authorised person" are only authorised to trade in forex. it is regulated under FEMA Act, 1999.

True. I assumed Jigar was a licensed FOREX broker.

Illegal or not, department will tax him anyhow. For income earned illegally you are liable to pay the tax still. Yes he will be prosecuted under FEMA by RBI if he has done anything to violate.

Forex trading is not related with export sales. If some one Trade Foreign Currency then it will called Forex trading. The export sales are different from it IN export sale the profit/loss is not depends on forex rate exchange fluctuation is just matter of chance where as in forex trading the trader depends on fluctuation profit & loss

if it is the business of the person then it will be the income under head PGBP  and if it is the casual income of the assessee then it will be taxable under head income under other sources.

Agreed that it should be taxed as business income , same as F&O.

Regarding forex trading  this should help : -Open an online share trading or forex trading or currency trading account whose registered Regulatory office is based anywhere out side Indian Jurisdcition. Then open an International Personal Banking Account in the same country bank where you hold trading account and I would like to say that it is allowed as per the LRS scheme FAQ point number 36 mentioned on https://www.rbi.org.in/scriptttts/FAQView.aspx?Id=53

Once you open a trading account AND also an international personal banking account in jurisdiction which falls outside India, then you can first of all send the money to you international personal banking account using the LRS scheme.  Then from that bank account simply transfer to your trading account which is also in the same country and does not falls in Indian Jurisdiction. This is the way and legal way to do forex trading using the LRS scheme and within legal limits.

Also ICICI securities is offering forex trading to share trading clients

PS : pls do your homework ,  i dont practise RBI regs or fema
