(1) Is it lawful to pay income tax by the amount received as interest on bank savings? (2) I have taken a credit card from bank by which I can take loan from bank for 40 days and if I pay it back within 40 days I will not be charged any interest. Bank takes only charges of this facility say Rs 500/= per annum. Is this transaction lawful?
