Any capital asset held by the taxpayer for a period of more than 36 months immediately preceding the date of its
transfer will be treated as long-term capital asset. It is charged at 20%. 

However, in respect of certain assets like shares (equity or preference) which are listed in a recognised stock exchange in India  then long term capital gain is exempted.

The answer to this question depends on the nature of asset sold and long term capital gains derived. There are certain assets where long term capital gains are exempt from tax.

Your question is more like an objective type question in an examination. The answer to your question is both Yes and No. Tax liability depends upon the type of assets and fulfillment of conditions relating to exemptions. 

I suggest that you can make best use of this forum by seeking clarifications on your specific issues.
