My “in laws” have gifted a fixed deposit to my minor daughter. The FD is made in the name of “Suhani Gupta u/g Parmod Gupta ( Suhani is my daughter – age 12 years and Parmod is my mother in law ) . The interest is cumulative receivable on maturity in the year 2023.
Now the query is – Annual Interest due from this FD should be shown annually in the income tax return of parents – throughout the tenure of FD ( based on the concept of Accrual basis ) OR it can be shown in the income tax return of Suhani Gupta in the year 2023 when the entire interest is received and she will be above 18 years ( based on the concept of Cash basis ) ……!!!!!!
