I have received a Non statutory query for my father who has passed away last week.
Query has been raised regarding non filing of IT return for FY 2012-13.
His Investment has been shown as Rs 54 lakhs in form of FDs during the year and generation of Interest income of Rs 4.6 lakh.
Details have been asked regarding source of investments
He was 81 years old in 2012. He had a Fd of approx Rs 25 Lakhs which was getting renewed. I had transferred Rs 30 lakhs from my pensionary benefits in Aug 2012 to make him self sufficient, It was given to him as Interest free returnable loan. bank transaction details are available.
He may not have filed ITR as income from interest was below taxable income of Rs 5 lakh.
How should the reply be semt to ITO.
