Section 56(2)(VII) of the Income Tax Act,1961 reads as any even if amount exceeding Rs. 50,000/- if received from “Relative” then it is not chargeable to tax.

However the definition of the term “Relative” which is given in the 1st explanation to the proviso to section 56(2)(VII) is very wide in its own.

Hence the following list and chart is a simplification of that definition for the ready reference of readers.
