On of my colleagues father helped his relatives financially long years back. Now that the financial condition has improved and those relatives got settled in US, they want to pay the amount back to his father. The question is the amount runs into lakhs of rupees. Will it attract any government taxes once they get deposited in his fathers savings account. I think he said it will be either ICICI, SBI or YES bank accounts. Further, will it IT people come to know about such transaction or will the bank itself inform the IT dept. and then all the pains of investigations etc? His father and he both are regular tax payers and simple normal people, no black money etc. background.
