Income tax on Fixed Deposit done by me on name of my mother

POSTED BY tanmayb ON February 16, 2014 4:48 pm COMMENTS (3)

If I make a Bank Fixed Deposit in the name of my mother who is a home maker and has no income which I will declare using form 15G.

Then at the time of maturity of the Fixed Deposit is there any possibility that IT department may ask from my mother that from where she got this money to invest in Fixed Deposit and cause any other issues/hurdles to her or me either.

Thanks and Regards

    Dear Tanmay, to avoid any query on a later date, please prepare a gift deed for your mother that you have gifted X amount. Please do note, once you gift it to your mother it’s her capital and she may use it as per her own choice. If she like to give this amount to any of your sibling, you can not stop her.

      Thanks Ashal,

      From where can I get a legally correct deed format.
      I searched the internet but could not find a satisfactory format.
