The second option is that he sells the land and gifts me the proceeds from this sale by check in the amount of 25 lakh rupees. Which option is favorable for tax purposes..
You can gift shares to your children as they are relative to you provided RBI approval is required and regulations & compliances are required to be fulfilled like gift does not exceed 5% of the paid up capital of the company, sectoral cap is not breached, total value cannot exceed 50000USD in one financial year etc. Its better to consult a good CA for such matters9 money send to india Is cash illegal in India
Say if money transferred as "maintenance" is used in some investment, like buying a house or investing in stocks or bonds abroad, is there any rule against it? It is to be noted here that once the money is transferred to NRI account abroad, there is no control of resident Indian father, wheather under the option of "maintenance" or under the option of "gift" and therefore, common sense says, that issue is irrelevant from taxation point of view for any party. Please clarify.
