  • Is this a scam? Have you ever seen this friend in real life? – Glen Pierce Jun 17 '18 at 17:00

Money or Cash received as a gift has a Gift Tax which needs to be paid if it exceeds INR 50,000 annually (Unless it is for a marriage or from a relative with a blood relation).

If the above does not apply in your case, then it would be treated as an income and taxable as per your income and the tax slabs of the financial year.

So, the answer is, it depends. To determine whether you have to pay tax or not, have a look at the FAQs here
