Income tax


Dear Sir,

           I started to wok in Afghanistan from  August 2012.I have been sending money through wire transfer to my brother  saving account.I have have saved up to 8 -9 Lac in his account.

Last week my brother has made a 5 Lac transaction  and  the bank officials said that he may get notice for IT to pay tax .

I don't have any assets or  FD or mutual funds  in India 

Please advise whether I need to pay income Tax.

 

 

 

thank you,

simply because there is a Rs5 lacs transaction in S.B a/c ,there wont be any tax.

be vey clear as to nature of transaction,like an asset buy ,whom paid ,  if paid in cash/cheque etc... to reply your query.

 you need not worry about  tax on money in S.B a/c.

on the contrary,money in savings bank earns interest @4% P.A.some banks pay even more.

the question of taxing money in savings bank does not arise.

as far as repayment of loan by you from out of your brother's  savings bank a/c,,keep carefully all correspondence,records , receipts and documents for any future verification

.your brother needs to explain the transactions in his bank a/c,in case of any  inquiry /verification.

being an nri,you can  open  NRE/NRO  a/c,wherein you can put money in  or draw money  out of them or transfer or save as you like.

as far as upper limit of  amounts kept  in S.B a/c,there is no restriction, though some banks may not allow more than Rs 10 lacs.

but remember cash deposits in S.B a/c of Rs 10 lacs or more in a year will create problems U/S 285BA  of ITAct.
