  1. Gift to private trust even by its benificiary is taxable under the source income from other sources and liable to tax as per income tax slab applicable to trust.

  2. Gift Above Rs.50000/= is taxable. Tax will be on income if individual income crosses from tax slab defined by Income tax deptt. Income Tax paid by trust on their income nothing to do with individual income.
