Tax on interest income of a gift to a relative

If a gift which is tax free(ie from a son to father) in the form of cash is invested in a deposit by the receiver(i.e. the father) and it earns interest, to whose income should the earned interest be included, the donor or the receiver?

Hi, The interest earned shall become the income of the receiver i.e.father in this case. Here,interest is being earned by the receiver ( on deposit made in his name) that becomes his income for the financial year.
