  1. Dear Girish, is there in any WILL of your FIL? If not, I assume your wife is merely a nominee of the amount & as your FIL is no more, the amount should be divided between the heirs of your FIL in equal portion. That’s the legal position. On family front, if your wife & all other siblings are not claiming any stake on the amount, your wife can transfer the amount directly to her mother.

    Now the answer for Taxation – As it’s merely a receipt of capital, there is no tax on either your wife if she hold money with her or her mother. So in simple words zero tax at the time of receipts. Yes once this amount of 3L Rs. start earning any income, that income may become taxable.
