Any amount received over Rs. 50000 in a financial year from a relative as a gift is not taxable in the hands of the receiver. And the terms of the conditions in which the person shall be considered a relative or not are well laid down in the Income tax act.
However in an instance, when the transfer without consideration is to a non-relative and equals to over Rs. 50,000 in a financial year then the tax implication arise for the receiver of funds.
Also, playing safe it is advised that such transfer should be effected through a gift deed and is in written format. So a gift deed is very vital and does not result in any kind of tax liability for your or the payee individual.
