The Revenue Tax Act supplies for taxation of earnings from different sources (like curiosity) both on money or accrual foundation on the possibility of the taxpayer. If the taxpayer opts for taxation on ‘money foundation’, curiosity from Kisan Vikas Patra (KVP) could also be taxed within the 12 months of its maturity on the slab charges which might be relevant in that 12 months for a person. Accordingly, curiosity from KVP shall be taxed within the arms of your sister in 2027 as per the then present slab charges.

No tax might be deducted from this maturity proceeds and full tax on such curiosity must be paid by your sister on advance tax/ self-assessment tax foundation.
