A case where Gold in possession was analysed and judgement was given involving taxation, the judgement has the following included:

'The Assessee's case 4.1 The assessee's explanation towards the impugned credit is of it being the sale proceeds of gold jewellery (1044.300 grams), received by her on the occasion of her marriage in 1982, as well as on the birth of first daughter and first son, as is common in Hindu Marwari families, to one which she belongs, being rather a part of her streedhan. In fact, even the Revenue, in view thereof, vide CBDT Instruction No. 1916 dated 11.05.1994, directs its officers not to seize gold ornaments to the extent of 500 grams in search in the case of a married lady. The jewellery is, further, duly reflected in her wealth tax returns for assessment years (A.Ys.) 2006-07 and 2007-08, and backed up by valuation report (dated 28.12.2007) from an approved Valuer (Kumarpal Umedmad Jain), besides by sales bills issued by the jeweller, M/s. Vimalsons Jewellers, Zaveri Bazaar, Mumbai.'
