In the present case capital gains is taxable in the hands of the Firm and not individual partners. 

We need to check the agreement between the partners i.e. retired partners and the then existing partners to comment on the share. In the retirement deed and also new partnership deed the terms need to be seen so as to check the terms regarding the property.

Need more clarity on the same , you can mail us on modani005@gmail.com or call us.

If the retirement of partners is considered as dissolution of firm, based on scrutiny of documents, then firm is liable to pay capital gains on the market value of assets of the firm as on date of dissolution less cost of acquisition.
