Gold coins service award


Our company gives gold coins as long service award. Now will it become taxable on the hands of employees. If so what is the tax rule in this regard.

Please advice.

If the value of such gift received from employer exceeds Rs 5,000, the entire gift value will be taxable in the employee's hands.
