If you are sending money to your close relative, it won't be taxable. However, if you are sending money to your friend or acquaintance in India and the amount is above Rs. 50,000, then it is taxable. The excess amount above Rs. 50,000 would be treated as income and the receiver of the funds would have to pay income tax on it in India.
When it comes to bank transfers from the US to India, Remitly, for example, offers some of the fastest transfers available, and with them you can expect money to arrive in your recipient's bank account in just a matter of minutes. For cash pickup transfers, Small World and Remitly are on average the quickest services, with cash also frequently being ready for pickup in India within minutes after payment has been made in the US.
Pay-out Method: Customers opting for the cash pickup or mobile wallet pay-out option, will typically see funds arrive within minutes, albeit for a fee. On the other hand, bank deposits may take up to 2 days to be delivered due to the corresponding banks involved in processing the payment. 3 currencies exchanges indian usd inr exchange rate historical data download

Hi Sangeeta, straight from the source
If your brother residing in UAE sends money to you in India, the money is not taxable in India. As per the Indian Income Tax Act, money received as a gift from a relative is not considered as income and therefore is not taxable. A relative is defined as spouse, brother, sister, brother or sister of the spouse, brother or sister of either of the parents, any lineal ascendant or descendant. However, it's worth noting that your brother might be subject to taxes in the UAE for sending money out of the country. It's recommended to check with a tax professional in the UAE to understand the tax implications for your brother.
