- The capital gain would be Rs ~ 17 Lakhs.
To calculate the long-term capital gains tax payable, the following formula is to be used:
Long-term capital gain = full value of consideration received or accruing – (indexed cost of acquisition + indexed cost of improvement + cost of transfer), where:
Indexed cost of acquisition = cost of acquisition x cost inflation index of the year of transfer/cost inflation index of the year of acquisition.
Indexed cost of improvement = cost of improvement x cost inflation index of the year of transfer/cost inflation index of the year of improvement.
-If you do not get a chance to invest in a profitable property immediately and still want to save your long-term gains from being taxed, you can invest your capital gains in CGDAS by approaching any public sector bank. The timeframe for the purchase or construction of the property remains unchanged in this case as well. But you can utilise this account momentarily so that you save your gains from being taxed and have more time to finalise a property for reinvestment.
-You are required to deposit entire capital gain amount in capital gain account-
