Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi has urged Finance Minister Piyush Goyal to make amendments to the Income Tax Act so that gifts to wives or daughters-in-law are not taxed. Gandhi said the act was having an adverse effect as women at present were becoming financially more independent.
