Sale of ready to occupy builder flat before taking possession
My husband and I had registered jointly for a flat in NOIDA in 2010 and the flat is now ready in 2016 to move in . we have not yer taken possession , we plan to sell the flat through the builder. Can you please clarify the following
1. Since possession has not been taken what will be the tax structure for the sale
2. the guideline value set by NOIDA Authority is much higher than the prevailing market rate, what amount of money would be considered as a profit on which we would be taxed ?
3. my husband does not have any income at the moment, what would be his tax liability?

1. You will be liable to pay capital gain tax on the difference of sale value and indexed cost of acquisition. It will be a long term capital gain.
2.If the sale consideration is less than the stamp duty value. stamp duty value will be deemed to be sale consideration.
3. Refer point 1.
Please feel free to call/revert in case of any doubts
Thanks and Regards

It will be treated as income from other sources and taxed.
In your case take from the purchaser what you have invested and some portion of profit. Then the sale deed will be made between the Builder and the new purchaser. They will take care of the valuation.
