Income tax on amount received from father


I have received 4 lakhs Rs. from my father  through check into my bank account. I had borrowed cash ammount from my friends at the time of wedding. So I have withdrawn the cash from bank that my father transferred to me and paid it back to my friends in cash.  Do I need to pay any tax on this amount that was transferred to my account by my father?

You can show that amount as Loan from Father as unsecured loan and after some time you pay back your father through cheque only

If you show the amount as gift from your Father, it will not attract any Income Tax. Howevever any income out of such amount such as interest earned is liable for Tax. You can Google search " Gifts from close relatives income Tax" for thew exact provisions
