Whether Commission Earned in Foreign Exchange Taxable in India?

I am negotiating with a US based supplier of goods to arrange the order from India. They will pay commission to me based on the confirmed order/payment from the buyer. The commission will be in foreign currency. What is the income tax liability on such commission received from the overseas supplier.

Since the commission will be received by you as RESIDENT of India  from a foreign entity , it is fully taxable in your hand. There is no deduction under any provision of I T Act under which you will get the deduction for earning in foreign exchange.
