In case ,the Karta dies a question arises whether the other members of family when they are admitted to the Partnership join in the capacity of representative of the family or join the partnership individually. The Apex Court in the case of Y.L. Agarzvalla vs CIT. (1978) 3 SCC 426, : laid down the following tests in such cases:
whether the income received was directly related to any utilization of family assets;
whether the family had suffered any detriment in the process of the family funds; and
