Income tax department allows depreciation based upon "block of asset method". In case of sale, the value will be removed from the block and depreciation will be computed for the balance figure. FAR is different for income tax purpose and for accounting purpose.

Dear Sir,

This depends on the nature of lease..if the lease is in the nature of operating lease, you can claim depreciation for the whole year for the purpose of income tax. However, if it is in the nature of financial lease, you cannot claim depreciation.
