Please note that
Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics) Regulations, 2002, prohibits medical practitioners from accepting freebies,
As per above Regulations, receiving emoluments in the form of gifts, travel facilities, hospitality, cash, etc., can lead to suspension of a medical practitioner’s right to practice for up to one year
Hence The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) vide circular no. 5/2012, dated 01-08-20212, had clarified that expenses incurred by pharmaceutical and allied health sector industries for distribution of incentives (freebies) to medical practitioners are not eligible for deduction as per explanation 1 to section 37(1) of income tax act..
IN the plea filed by pharmaceutical companies , The Supreme Court held that ‘pharmaceutical companies’ gifting freebies to doctors is prohibited by law and they cannot claim it as a deduction under section 37(1) of income tax act.
Apart from fact that gift received by doctor from pharma companies is not legal.
The same if received may be booked as other income in books of accounts and liable to pay tax on this income. And this is also subject to tds u/s 194R.
