Claiming deduction

I sold a property for 1 crore 
Invested 50lakhs on buying 20 year old apartment and spent 30 Lakshmi for renovation
I have clear bills for 20 Lakhs spend for civil work and another 10 Lakhs for designing

My question is, is it possible for claiming deduction from capital gain on both purchase and renovation
Asked 1 year ago in Capital Gains Tax from Chennai, Tamil Nadu
Dear sir,

It is not possible to take capital gain deduction for renovation work.

It is only possible in case of purchase or new construction.

Thanks and Regards

As you spent on renovating the house, which is capital in nature, you can claim deduction as cost of improvement of the house while calculating income taxable under the head ‘capital gain’. Further, since the house has been held for more than 36 months, it would be treated as a long-term capital asset. In such a case, indexation benefit shall also be available on the cost of improvement, starting the year in which the cost was incurred.

Dear Sir,

This is a litigative manner as you will have to show cause how the cost of improvement is the cost of purchase in order to set it off against your Capital Gains.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Feel free to call back/ get back in case of further clarifications. 

Thanking You.
