Dear Sir,

Your father can gift you the money before paying taxes on ltcg. However he has to show this ltcg in his return if income and pay taxes on it on or beofre the due date of filing of return.

Please feel free to revert in case you require any additional clarification on the above.

Thanks and Regards,

You mean 15 June 2016. This will be your father's ltcg and not yours. It will pertain to FY 2016-17 for which your father will have to file ITR on or beofre 31 July 2017.

CIF will be published well and before the due date of filing of ITR.

In the present case there is no compulsion that tax is to be paid before or after gift. It is liability of your father to pay tax and file return of Income. The indexation year is financial year 2016-2017 which is not yet notified by the government.
