Gifts up to Rs 50,000 per annum are exempt from tax in India. In addition, gifts from specific relatives like parents, spouse and siblings are also exempt from tax. Gifts in other cases are taxable. Tax on gifts in India falls under the purview of the Income Tax Act as there is no specific gift tax after the Gift Tax Act, 1958 was repealed in 1998.

all kinds of gifts including cash, gold, real estate, paintings or any other valuable item are taxable. However if the cash amount or value of the gift in kind is less than Rs 50,000 the same would not be taxable.
