Cost Inflation Index – Capital Gain

Cost Inflation index for the Financial Year 2017-2018 has been announced to be 272

For computing long-term capital gains, knowledge of cost inflation index is necessary. The capital gains will be computed after deducting the indexed cost of acquisition (purchase) from the full value of consideration. The cost of purchase of the asset will be increased by applying the cost inflation index (CII). Once the cost inflation index is applied to the cost of acquisition, it becomes indexed cost of acquisition.

In computing capital gains arising from the transfer of a long term capital asset, deduction can be claimed for the cost of acquisition and the cost of Improvement after indexing them.

Cost inflation Index” for any year means such index as the central government may, having regard to 75% of average rise in consumer price index for urban non manual employees for the immediately preceding previous year to such previous year by notification in the official gazette specify in this behalf.

This means an amount which bears to the cost of acquisition, the same proportion as CII for the year in which the asset is transferred bears to the CII for the first year in which the asset was held by the assessee or for the year beginning on 1st April, 2001, whichever is later.

Cost Inflation Index (Revised) – From 2001

The revised rates will be applicable from 1st April 2017 and from assessment year 2018-19 onward..

Change of Base Year for Calculation of Capital Gains
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had proposed to change the base year to calculate the indexation benefit from 1981 to 2001 in the 2017 budget. Till 31 Mar 2017, capital gain was calculated with 1981 as the base year. This means that the purchase price of an asset bought before 1 April 1981 could be calculated on the basis of the fair market value of 1981. From 1 Apr 2017, the purchase price will be calculated based on the fair market value of 2001. Accordingly, capital gains on assets acquired before 1 April 2001 will also be calculated using fair market value as on 2001.

    • March 31, 2013 @ 4:40 pm Joshua

      Agricultural Lands are exempted from Capital Gains. You need not pay any Capital Gain Tax.


      • April 21, 2013 @ 10:45 am ATUL

        Where is it specified that agricultural lands are exempted from Capital Gains Tax and is this a certainty??


        • April 22, 2013 @ 2:57 pm Joshua

          Dear Friend,
          Section 2(14) of the Income Tax Act, 1961, excludes rural agricultural land in India from the definition of Capital Asset. Transfer of Capital Assets only results in Capital Gain. Hence Agricultural Lands are Exempted from Capital Gains.


          • May 3, 2013 @ 4:53 am Vani Rai

            But Sir,
            Agricultural land situated within the specified limits(8 km.) from municipal corporation , if sold, the capital gains so arising are Taxable !

          • May 4, 2013 @ 3:31 am Joshua

            Dear Friend,
            You are right. And Such Municipality or cantonment board must have have a population of 10000 or more according to the latest census. And I also forgot to mention that Agricultural Lands Sold for Non Agricultural Purpose will be treated as capital Asset and it is clarified in the case Sarifa Bibi Mohamed Ibrahim & others 204 ITR 631 (SC).

        Dear Sir,
        WE have an agricultural property which is situated exactly at 8 kms distance from muncipal corporation(population almost 10000). We are now planning to sell the property. Could u please specify if the sale proceeds so obtained would be taxable or not.
        Thanks & Regards


        • May 8, 2013 @ 2:28 am Joshua

          If your property is situated at exactly at 8kms distance then you can claim it as an agricultural Property.

          For your Note the distance from the municipal area is to be measured by approach road and not as per straight line distance on a horizontal plane or as per crow’s flight (Held in the case CIT, Ludhiana Vs Sh Satinder Pal Singh 188 Taxman 54 P&H).

    My query is: Is this CII chart only applicable for Long term Capital gains or short term too?
    I mean if I sell my property before 3 years will this CII comes into existence or it would be flat % deduction as per my salary bracket?
    Please help me!
    Thanks in Advance


    • April 30, 2013 @ 2:54 am Anne Jose

      The benefits of indexation (CII) is applicable only to Long Term Capital Assets. Short term capital gains (Without indexation) except shares will be taxed at usual slab rates in case of an individual.

    I purchased a residential house in the year 1989 for Rs.2,00,000/- and let it out the same till 2013. In April 2013 I executed a partition deed/ settlement deed, dividing the house in to five equal parts one each to my three sons and one each to myself and my wife. In May 2013 all five of us jointly sold the house and realised a consolidasted capital gains of Rs.1.50 crores. Can this capital gains can be shown @ 30 lacs each to each of the five persons. And If all of us invest individually Rs.30 lacs in specified assets u/s 54EC can we escape the capital gains. Kindly reply

    How to calculate cost inflation index if property purchased before year 1981 when 1st CII DECLARED? MEANS I PURCHASED PROPERTY IN YEAR 1971 & SALE NOW. THEN HOW TO CALCULATE LONG TERM GAIN?


    • May 29, 2013 @ 1:28 pm Hemant Seth

      I purchased a house in Ahmedabad in 1971 for Rs 23000. And sold it at Rs 15 lacs in May 2013. Do I have to pay any capital gain tax on this.


      • May 30, 2013 @ 10:57 am Joshua

        [The comment is Updated]
        For Properties Purchased before 1981 the Cost Inflation Index of the year 1981 Should be Taken.

        For your Second Question, the CII for FY 2013-2014 has not yet been declared by the Government as you will be paying tax on this transaction next year only.

        Update: CII for the Financial year 2013-2014 is declared. The CII is 939.

        Indexed Cost of Acquisition : Rs.23000 X 939/100 = Rs. 215970
        Your Capital Gain will be Rs.1500000 – 215970 = Rs.1284030


        • June 7, 2013 @ 10:32 am Hardik

          1981 Value of the property is to b found out first and than if its greater than the acquisition cost than indexation is taken on the 1981 value hence decreasing ur capital gain.

    Can you please let me know where to lookup the cost of inflation index for manufactured automotive parts in india


  12. June 2, 2013 @ 3:23 pm Amogh

    I bought a flat in march 05 for 46 Lakhs inclusive of stamp duty reg. i sold it in dec 2012 for 1 crore. i would like to do the cost indexation for this and put the gains in an REC bond. could someone help me calculate an approximate value for investing into this bond?


    • June 7, 2013 @ 10:29 am Hardik

      Unless u r taking any other deduction u/s 54 ur capital gain will come around 1835000. 1cr – ((46 Lakhs*852)/480).
      i.e 10000000 – 8165000 = 1835000. So dis will b the amount u would have to deposit in RCE bonds to avoid payment of capital gain tax which will be in for a lock in period of 3 years.


      • June 9, 2013 @ 9:23 am Saurav Pruthi

        Pls let me know why u divide 852 by 480. Wat is 480


        • June 10, 2013 @ 2:03 am Joshua

          480 is the Cost inflation Index for the Financial Year 2004 – 2005 (The year when he purchased the Asset) . The 852 is the CII for the Financial year 2012 – 2013 (The year he sold the Asset).


  13. June 9, 2013 @ 6:41 pm SET

    Please correct me if wrong. I heard the indexation for the financial year 13-14 is 939. Infact I also want to know if this is correct. Pls reply

    Does Section 54EC apply to former citizens of India? The situation is that the person is no longer a citizen of India, but owns residential property to sell in India. Also, it seems the seller cannot own any other property – This person does not own any property in India.
    Can he/she avoid Income taxes on Capital Gains by using Section 54EC to invest in bonds even though they do own property outside of India?
    Also, at the time of completing the transaction, it seems like tax will be deducted at source at 20%. Is that on the sale value or the net Capital Gains?



  15. June 13, 2013 @ 12:46 pm Prakash Vohra

    I have sold shares on 1st April 2013. I believe CII applicable to Capital gain arising out of this this sale is 939. Is this correct? Please guide.

    I bought an apartment in 2007 Dec for around 56 lacs.
    Also, got the possession/registration in 2011 Feb .. do I understand correctly :
    – 3 years term ends in 2014 Feb and after that LTCG can be applied?
    – CII is to be used for 2007 Dec as I have been paying loans etc to banks based on the prices/interest rates then. Not based on 2011 prices when I got the possesion


  17. June 25, 2013 @ 10:25 am V K Singh

    I had purchased a flat from AWHO in 2002 for a sum of
    Rs 12.75 lacs. The amount was paid in installments between 1997 and 2002 as shown below:-

    Feb 1999 Regn. fee (incl. interest – 28,866

    5 Aug 97 50% of land cost – 1,00,000

    5 Nov 97 50% of land cost – 1,00,000

    5 Feb 98 Additional land cost – 37,300

    5 May 99 15% cost of DU – 1,35,000

    5 Nov 99 20% cost of DU – 2,18,500

    5 May 00 20% cost of DU – 2,18,500

    7 Nov 00 20% cost of DU – 2,18,500

    5 Jul 01 20% cost of DU – 2,18,500
    Total 12,75,166

    If I sell the house now, what will be the indexed cost? how much long term capital gains will I have to pay? I am planning to build an additional floor in the house in which I live. What is the minimum amount I should spend on this to avoid LTCG Tax?

    Please guide me.


  19. July 18, 2013 @ 5:21 am Sangita Singh

    Yes no doubt indexation benefits will be applicable in case of long term capital gain and not for short term capital gain. For long term capital gain the period of holding must exceed 3 years but in case of share period of holding must exceed 12 months only.

    Therefore conclusion is that if your assets is share and you are selling it after 12 months then you will get indexation benefit and in case of other assets you will get indexation benefit only selling after 3 years.


    • July 26, 2013 @ 2:16 am Manikandan

      yes sure that benefit will get only after 3 years


    • July 26, 2013 @ 6:04 am Satyajit Bose

      As per my knowledge, shares bought by STT paid. Which is completely Income Tax free. All LTCG (STT paid) are such.
      Therefore, no need of indexation for LTCG in shares.


  20. August 3, 2013 @ 1:04 pm Durai

    Whether LTCG capital gain invested for a new flat in my son’s name will be eligible for exemption under section 54. If not what will be the tax I have to pay if my investment in 1989 is Rs.300,000.00 and the sale proceeds of the flats that I would sell by Sept 13 would be approximately Rs.50,00,000.00.
    Thanks in advance

    I own a flat since 1999. I purchased another flat in 2009 which was under construction. I had taken a loan of 30 lac for purchase of 2nd flat. The 2nd flat is going to be completed and I will take possession in a months time. Can I sell my flat puchased in 1999 and repay Rs 30 lac home loan and claim exemption from Capital gains tax for the said amount.


  22. August 13, 2013 @ 8:19 am Himmat

    Dear Sir,

    In regards to a inherited property, can you please explain from which date the property gain tax will be applied from?

    For example, my house was build in 1984 on a agricultural property bought in 60’s. My gradfather passed away in 2000. Now I would like to know that if my father is to sell the property, let’s say in 2014, then from which date will the property gain tax will be applied from?

    a) The date my grandfather passed away OR
    b) The date the land was legally transferred on my father’s name? (in this case 2013) OR
    c) The date property was bought in 60’s?

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.



    • August 14, 2013 @ 3:41 am Joshua

      Hi Himmat,

      When an asset is acquired by gift, will, Succession , inheritance or the asset is acquired at the time of partition of family [….].. , the period for which the asset was held by the previous owner should be included..

      Here the Previous Owner is your Grand Father, so the date of acquisition of Land will be the year 1960. But for indexation purpose you must estimate the fair market value of the Land as on 1st April, 1981.

      The cost of Building will be the Cost of Improvement.


  23. August 18, 2013 @ 8:01 am Partha


    I would like to know about short term capital gains.

    I have a flat already in my wife’s name and we’ve purchased another flat in joint name by taking loan from LIC. My queries are as below:

    The previous property was purchased as on 24th March, 2009 (Date of allottment) and took possession on (25/02/2012).

    The said property is still not registered.

    On 9th February,2013 we’ve purchased another flat and the registration and mutation has been done for this one. This has been purchased by taking loan from LIC.

    Now my questions are as below:

    1. We want to sell the first flat which is in my wife’s name by way of transferring the name through the developer by paying a 3% of transfer charges to them. We are taking tax relief on Interest on loan paid and Principal paid on 50% basis as there is a joint ownsership for the newly purchased flat. Can we take tax relief on the sale proceed as per section 54 or 54F on capital gains.

    Say the cost of the first flat is as below:

    Rs. 1,00,000 for Flat
    Rs. 20,000 for Car parking
    Rs. 1000 for Service Tax
    Rs. 500 for Installation of the electricicty

    Total Sale Amount Say Rs. 5,00,000
    Transfer Charges Less Rs. 15,000
    Net Amount = Rs. 4,85,000

    1.Here my question is what will be my Capital gains part:
    Rs. 4,85,000-1,21,500
    or the calculation is not correct? Is there any other component I can add on?
    2. As I have already purchased another flat with higher amount say Rs. 10,00,000 and can we adjust the capital gain amount from the newly purchased flat. As the previous flat was in the name of my wife only what amount we can adjust towards the capital gain amount against the cost of the newly purchaed flat and under which section.Also cost of the newly purchaed flat would be amount as per deed of conveyance, registration charges and mutation charges or any other I can include.
    3. By when we need to complete the sale process for adjusting the capital gains part as that has been purchsed during the previous financial year(2012-2013).
    4. For adjusting the capital gains do we need to repay loan principal or only the purchasing of new flat will suffice. What documents would be required to subit to get this tax relief for both the old flat and new flat?

  25. August 24, 2013 @ 11:06 am lokesh

    I purchased a flat in 2002-3 at 5 lacs and sold same in 2013-14 at 22 lacs against a home loan.
    In 2011-12 I purchased a flat at 25 lacs(registry value) with a 25 lacs loan with an annual interest+principle outgo of 3.43 lacs pa.

    my queries are ;
    1. Can i show nil capital gain tax adjusting the capital gain against my earlier purchase.
    2. If not, can I adjust my loan outgo against the capital gain

    Please help



    • September 1, 2013 @ 11:50 am CA Akash Singhai


      Lokesh as per the Income Tax act, you can save your capital gain tax by investing adequate amount in another House Property either 1 year before sale or 2/3 year after sale by purchase/construct respectively.
      In your case you bought another flat on 11-12 which is 2 year before the current sale, hence you do not fall under the said clause for saving capital gain tax.
      However still you can make investment for atleast 22-10.5(Indexed cost value)=11.5L in another property to save 100% tax on your gain.

      Secondly your loan outgo has two parts Int+Principal, you can claim Int as house property loss upto the payment of Rs.150000 per annum and payment of Principal u/s 80C upto the cap of Rs.100000. These payments can be settled with any head of your income every year.

      Hope this could solve your queries.

      You need to consider CII for year 2005-06 and 2013-14.
      Based on this consideration there is -ve capital gain in this sale. If you have some other LTCG, then you can setoff same with this -ve value or discuss with your CA for more options.

      Dear Manish

      The fair value of your property as per cost indexation is 24.56 Lakhs which you have sold to 24 lakhs.There is no capital gain & hence you need not to pay any tax on it.


    • September 30, 2013 @ 8:39 am DS Sajwan

      Dear Manish,

      Purchase Value=13 Lakh
      Sale Value=24 Lakh

      Capital Gain=13 Lakh*939/497=24.56 Lakh

      So you dont have to pay any tax

    My Grand father bought a house in Apr 1951 @ Rs 10,000.
    Now, I want to sell it on Oct 2013 for Rs 14 Crors.

    What will be the capital gain amount..?
    Which Cost Inflation Index of the year Should be Taken?



  29. September 15, 2013 @ 12:14 pm venkatesh

    how is the indexation done for a property purchased in 1974-75 and sold in 2013-14?

    say the purchase price was 30,000 and selling price was 65,00,000? pl revert on the approx tax liability if 35,00,000 was reinvested in a new house.

    also is there a benefit for a senior citizen?


    • September 16, 2013 @ 6:00 am Atharv Apte

      you 1st need to find out the fair market value of the house in the prev year 81-82. You have the option to consider fair market value or actual cost as the cost of acquisition (I would suggest take higher of the 2 amounts as it would lower your tax burden). Then use this formula: Cost of acquisition*(CFI in 13-14/CFI in 81-82).
      Subtract it from your net sale consideration and you would get your capital gain.U/S 54 If u have reinvested in another property a year ago or within 3 years you would get exemption for the invested amount upto the limit of your capital gain or if the capital gain is more than re-investment then for the whole value (35,00,000 as you said).


    • October 9, 2013 @ 10:34 am vignesh iyer

      first computation of capital gain will be done
      74-75 will be considered at mp during 1980-81 or cost whichever is higher
      so if suppose mp at 1980-81 was 45000 then
      cost(rs 30000) or mp on 80-81(45000) higher of this is taken
      and then fy 13-14
      45000*index value of ay 14-15(presume 1000)/100
      will b indexation cost

    My mother & brother have jointly purchased an apartment in April which was registered at the guidance value of 30 lacs although the actual purchase price was 68 lacs (with loan of 50 lacs).
    My Mother plans to sell her house in november for 86 lacs which was purchased for 7 lacs in Oct 1991.
    When offsetting the long term capital gains on sale of the house against purchase of the apartment, do we have to consider the registration value of the apartment (30 lacs) or the actual purchase price (68 lacs)?

    Sir, when equity shares purchased during the the year 1985 and sold in 2013 can have the benifit of indexation,why not debentures purchased and sold during the respective periods??


    • December 10, 2013 @ 6:13 pm CA Karan Shah

      Bcoz debenture are not allowed to be indexed as per the income tax act

    I purchased land in Jan’1984 at jodhpur (Rajasthan) Rs.10,000/- and sold in oct.13
    In 25lacs.
    Kindly inform the amount of capital gain tax with calculations and amount for which i have to purchase tax saving bonds.


    • November 18, 2013 @ 6:46 pm hh

      4.85 l in bonds…


    • November 23, 2013 @ 12:41 pm Pranav

      Capital gain will be as follows
      Sale Consideration 2500000
      Less: Indexed cost of Acquisition 80948
      So Long Term Capital Gain will Be 24,19,052
      And Tax on the same will be Flat @ 20% Rs. 4,83,810/-


      • December 7, 2013 @ 5:25 pm Nitin Gupta

  34. November 24, 2013 @ 1:04 pm Thomas


    Please let me know the Inflation indexed capital gain for a property which was purchased in 2010 and sold in 2013.

    Date of purchase : 08-Nov-2010 purchase value : 80 Lakhs. Renovation expense : 4.4 Lakhs.

    Date of Sale : 22-Nov-2013 Sale value : 1.05 Crore
    Selling cost : 1 Lakh.
    Based on your updates, if indexation is applied , no capital gain. Please advise.


    • January 23, 2014 @ 11:42 am ani

      Correct. Your 80 lacs is equivalent to 10565400.84 in 2013. You can show cost of acquisition as 84.4 lacs only if u have the original bills.

      Without the bills also you can show a loss from property of 565400.84.

    What will be the capital gain tax with indexation?


    • April 18, 2014 @ 2:32 pm manikandan

      Friend first of all your sales is not of long term asset
      Becouse indexation is only for long term asset
      which means you should keep the asset for more than
      36 months
      here ur asset is is short term so capital gain for 1st mf is

    Hello, my parents bought a flat in 1996 for about 10 lacs and spent about 4 lacs doing it up at the time. Both parents passed away and I inherited the flat which I have just sold for 44 lacs this year in 2013. What is my taxable capital gain ? And is iit the amount of the gain that can be invested in bonds and what time frame do I need to invest in bonds from time of sale of property? Any assistance you can provide will be very helpful.

    Thanks and best regards


    • January 23, 2014 @ 11:34 am ani

      If bought after march 1996 and sold after march 2013…305/- in 1996 is 939/- in 2013 as per index. so you can calculated what 10 lacs then is what amount in your selling year. 4 lacs extra work won’t get you anything unless you have the original bills. Profit calculated this way can be invested in another property within 6 months of selling or invested in infra bonds for 10 years i believe.


  38. January 20, 2014 @ 10:36 am Dhaval Shah


    I sold a flat in Jan 2014 at 31.5 lacs which I purchased in Dec 2010 @ Rs. 15.45 lacs in Baroda. Will you please adivse me what amount shall I consider for capital gain.

    • February 13, 2014 @ 4:39 am Monil

      your cost of aquisation Rs. 15.45L is equivalent to Rs. 20,40,443 in 2013. So your capital gain would be Rs. 11,09,557.



  39. February 2, 2014 @ 4:15 am ramesh

    my father sold gold jwellary inherited from his parents in 2010 without taking bills. can we calculate capital gain tax on this. pls advise.


  40. February 3, 2014 @ 4:34 am Laxmi

    Capital gain (Indexed) = 4900000 – Tax@20% 9,80,000
    Capital gain (Non Indexed) = 6300000 – tax@10% 6,30,000

    I want to know, whether i can buy a flat for 4900000(using indexation) or should i be buying a flat for 6300000 to avoid capital gain taxation?

    Many Thanks

    Purchased apartment in Aug 2003 for 7,00,000
    Sold Apartment in March 2011 for 29,00,000

    Entire amount in Capital Gains Saving Account since July 2011

    Considering CII, I have calculated the Capital Gains Tax to be paid = 2,37,365

    Can this tax be saved if I
    1) Invest in an under construction apartment to be completed only by 2015?
    2) In a villa, where Land registration will be done by Feb 2014 and priced at 30,00,000
    Construction of villa will be completed by Aug 2014?
    3) Buying only a plot of land worth 20,00,000

    Or is there any other way to save the tax, say, by now investing into relevant bonds?

    Dear Sir/ Madam,

    I am NRI and I have purchased property in 2006 for Rs. 3,000,000.00 as per CII 30L*(939/519) = 5,427,745.66
    Capital Gain will be around 2,427,745.66. I understand that to avoid tax on capital gain I need to invest this amount in new property. Here my question is do I need to provide this investment related documents to income tax. And also please help me to provide more details from NRI perspective.


    • February 19, 2014 @ 9:54 am Joshua

      Dear Friend,
      Capital Gain is calculated only when you sell the property.. And the capital gain will be Sale Price minus the Indexed Cost.. For example if you sell the Property for 6,000,000, then your Capital Gain will be 572,255 (6,000,000 – 5,427,745). And in case if you sell the property for 5,000,000 you wont get any capital gain.. If you have capital gain you need to invest them in a property or you can deposit the money in a capital gain account scheme at a bank recognized by the Government of India..

    150000-(76550/632*939)=36265. Its a long term capital gains since the period of holding is more than 3 years. Tax amount is 36265*20/100=7253. If your income from all the other sources is less than Rs. 200000(BEL) you can set off the amount.

This land was sold in FY 2014-15 for Rs.4000000/-, Entire sale proceeds are utilised by the son in whose name the propery is mutationed(i.e.A) as A. The sale Deed mentions the sellers name as A. The other two brothers do not wish to claim the share in sale amount.. My query is:

    • July 15, 2014 @ 9:10 am Sudeep

      Dear Shah,

      You have to get the that property valued by registered officer as on 01.04.1981. Suppose the authority says the value of the said property on 1.4.1981 was nearly 10,00,000/- then your cost would be 1000000/100*1024=93,90000 and your sale vale is 13.5 crores.

      Capital gain is about 12.5 crore and individually it is 6.25 crores. you can invest in new property and avail the exemption u/s 54 provided you dont have more than 2 houses including the new one.

  59. July 17, 2014 @ 6:59 am Balaji

    Few Questions with respect to this:

    1) What is meant by Cost of Property? Is it the purchase price of the property by itself (or) Can Stamp Duty + Registration be added to calculate the same? (since they were cost to the buyer while purchasing the property)

    2) In my situation, the bank loan is not closed with a few lakhs remaining. I want to sell the property if a proper buyer approaches. In this case bank will only return the money after deducting the reminder of loan. Since that being the case, What will be the selling price of the property? Is that the actual selling price (or) the amount that is left in my bank account after the loan reminder is deducted by the bank

    Please do let me know. Thanks.

    • November 11, 2014 @ 12:16 pm Anup Mukherjee

      Inflation index was not applicable for 1967-68. You have to estimate the market value in 1981 and apply the index of 100 on that.

    Hi – Facts as follows:

    Purchased Site in March 1992 = Rs. 80,300
    Sold House on 13 November 2014 = Rs.56,25,000
    Index in year of purchase = 223
    Index in year of sale = 1025

    Indexed Cost of Property = Actual Purchase Price * (Index in year of sale / Index in year of purchase)
    Indexed Cost of Property = 80,300 * (1025 / 223) —- Rs. 369091.9282511211
    Sale Amount = Rs.56,25,000
    Capital Gain = 56,25,000 – 369091.9282511211 = Rs. 5255908.071748879

    Out of Rs. 52,55,908, i have reinvested Rs. 4275000 (incl. registration) in another property on 29th November 2014 and have kept the remaining Rs.10,00,000 odd in Capital Gain.

    Kindly confirm if I’m well within the fence of rules. Thanks in advance.

    I purchased a flat in Hyderabad in 2010 for total of Rs. 57 lakhs (1800 sft) in a multi-story building
    In 2011 the builder charged me for 2 car parking spaces + 2 years of maintenance fee + corpus fund + common gas pipeline for a total amt of Rs. 4 lakhs.
    Therefore, my total purchase amt in 2011 was Rs. 61 lakhs. However, the sale deed has the purchase price of Rs 21 lakhs.
    I have paid annual property tax of around Rs. 15000/- per year (totaling to Rs. 75,000/- till date)

    Now I plan to sell the flat for Rs. 90 lakhs. Taking into account this year’s CII as 1024,
    1) what would be my capital gain with the current CII (1024)?
    2) how can I reduce tax burden on my capital gain?

    Respected Sir,
    My case is an undivided family made of father/head fo family (P), wife(R), and only adult son (U) . He is US citizen and an Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) too.
    Total agri land holdings are 45 acres. An item of 205 acres are under contemplation of sale. Liklely price is Rs.4,00,00000/- (four crores. ) The land is within 2 ksm radius from the radius of limits of the nearby by municipal town having a population of 10960 people. The land is ancestral having passed on from generation to generation. P got the half of 21-5 acres by partition in the yeaar 1959 and rest common half from his paternal grandfather by registered settlement in the year 1976 or 77. That in the original partition fo the year 1959 both were common owners of the property. From 1976/77 onwards P has been the sole owner. P and R were married in 1974 and U was born in 1977. P has not been assessee at all whereas R is and U has been assessee in the USA. All three of has pancard and their HUF has its pancard too All three of us have individual Bank account . The HUF has opened its bank account too.
    1What will be the capital gain liability if sold at 4 crore?
    2, What would be unit of assessment? That is HUF or individual?
    3. Will there be any additional tax to the capital gain.
    4.can the son U sell his common half share in the property first by power of attorney in favor fo mother ro father ? And later say after a week father himself sells his common half to the same buyer and if so can the capital gain be apportioned between them ? so will be the capital gain liability too?
    5. What are the ways to minimise the capital gain . Say, can it be invested in any government securities and claim tax exemption?
    6.Can the capital gain be invested in acquisiiton house or land? r

    Registration of a flat in an Ideal Abasan scheme of Idel builder in Narainpur Kolkata in the FY 2010-11 and allotment letter is issued by the builder to the allot tee in FY 2010-11. I have transfer to our known persons on 05-12-2017 by executing the sale deed at Kolkata as per the circle rate. However, I have been paid less consideration. So far I have received Rs.26.00 lakh and may receive remaining Rs.4,00,000/- by the buyer as do not have funds with them.
    I have spent Rs. 2,30,000/- on stamp cost from the money received, hence, so far net amount is Rs. 23,70,000/- towards flat and likely to get Rs.4,00,000/- later. The amount to builder is Rs. 21,30,000/- and also incurred other expenses of Rs1750X12=Rs.21000/- month+ deposit with builder towards maintenance and further monthly maintenance of Rs.17500X28 months. Hence, Rs. 49000/- Index cost is 167 of year 2010-11 & 272 of 2017-18.
    Kindly works out capital gain if any and the flat is jointly owned by my wife & myself. Regards

But the sale deed was not executed since then due to the previous owner’s refusal, as his intention was to take more value which I refused. In 2007 I have filed a regular civil suit against him. Now, a third party is interested in buying the plot from me for Rs.2500000- and settle with the previou owner. How to go about with this deal? In case I get Rs.25 lacs, how to calculate capital gains as I do not have title over the property since sale deed is yet to be done. Please help. Thanks.

However the new property is still under construction and is likely to be handed over in 2020 ie after three years from my sale date. My query is , Is possession certificate mandatory for tax exemption or current payment receipt to builder will meet the requirement for tax exemption.
