    Does this gift transaction need to be detailed on a paper?

    1. Dear Sylvestor, not only there should be a gift deed on a plain paper duly signed by both, the gift giver & receiver but the mode of transaction of money should also be either cheque or bank draft or net banking.

      The gift deed should have the info about donor, donee, the amount, instrument used to gift. The donee should sign with a sentence, I accept the gift.

      Thanks

  2. Dear Vignesh, Instead of transferring money to her bank account every month, gift her a lump sum amount say 50K & then invest from that amount. Once gifted to her, it’s her money & accordingly the taxation ‘ll be under her name if at all the income becomes taxable.

    Thanks
