I my relative borrow 20lakh from me with the interest rate of 1% per month. So every year he gave me 240000 as interest. I paid via cheque as all my money is in bank. After this demonetization and knowing about the black money problem I get to know the money he was giving me considered as black money as he was giving me by cash. Now I have taken my money back and total interest I got is is 450000. So my question is: 1) how much can I pay tax on this and make it white money, 2) I got 240000 each year and if I deposit 450000 at once how the tax is calculated? My only purpose is to very less cash or no cash at home because I don't want any problem in future?
