      All the income that is not taxable under any other head like interest income, taxable gifts, family pension, lottery income, etc comes under Income from Other Sources head.
      Tax return is filed annually in the applicable form ITR 1 to ITR 7. You just have to choose which is the applicale form for for u. Fill it and submit it online or in the Income Tax Department where your jurisdiction falls.
