Hi All,

I am a software engineer and my brother is in US. He is sending me money which I am withdrawing and giving it to My Dad. Will I have to pay tax on these amount which I am not using for my personal benefit? This amount is being used to contruct one floor in already existing property in my mom's name and also on some monthly expediture.


I am married and settled as well.

What would be the implications on me? Do I need to pay taxes on the amount sent by my brother?

Please advice.


Thanks In advance.....
