Tax Implication of transferring shares from single to joint a/c

I have a demat account only with my own name. I want to transfer all my shares to another demat account jointly held with my wife where I am the first holder. I want to know whether I would get the long term capital gains benefit if I do so. My plan is to close the single account after all the holdings are shifted to the joint account. Can this be done?

Hello Sir,

You can very well transfer to a new demat account by doing the respective formalities. A mere transfer of shares from one demat to another does not constitute sale. So you need not worry about your Capital Gain Holding Status. You will get the entire benefit from the date of purchase till the date you actually enter into a sale transaction.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

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

Thanking You.

Dear Sir,

You can very well transfer the holdings from one demat account to another. You will not lose any benefit on capital gain.

Please feel free to call/revert in case of any doubts

Dear Sir,

If you are the first account holder and therefore only your wife is name added as joint owner and no long term benefit can be waived off for the same. You will be surely eligible for 100% long term benefit
