Whether assessee is  required to pay tax on Gross receipt Rs. 425000 or Net receipt Rs. 125000 (425000-300000 premium paid)

As circular issued by CBDT No.7/2003 Dated 05-09-2003, the extract of which says the income accruing on such policies (not including the premium paid by the assessee) shall become taxable.  Here Such policies mean policies not exempt from tax.

Therefore, as per the above circular, Rs.1,25,000/- (4,25,000-3,00,000) will be chargeable to tax under the head income from other sources.
