You need to establish reasonableness of interest paid on the basis of totality of facts and circumstances and difference in terems and conditions, you can also establish reasonableness based on other offeres for loan on the day when loan was taken @ 18%. The 12% loans may b taken earlier and at that time facts may be different. It is more a case of facts and not legal issue. The element of unreasonable amount is to be acertained on the day when transaction took place.

You may visit the following case: 2009 TMI - 32197 - PUNJAB AND HARYANA HIGH COURT. In addition i am fully in agreement with the view of the Mr. Kothari that it is an issue of facts. If the facts shows that the interest paid to relatives is genuine, you would get the justice at the appropriate forum.
