In case the woman’s party claims to have given huge amount in dowry, and if they don’t have income to support such amount of dowry, then you can file Tax Evasion Petition (TEP) followed by RTI on TEP to Income tax dept against FIL and dowry givers. Basic idea is to find out how they were able to give so much dowry if they do not have income. In case it comes out from RTI that they did not have so much income then their case will weaken considerably. If they still insist that they gave that much dowry, then they will have to explain to IT dept whey they did not disclose that income in those and previous years. IT rules are clear that if someone hides income to avoid income tax, they have to pay back income taxes along with interest for all the years and also penalty for evasion of income tax. Enjoy!
