Got Income tax department notice about capital gain
I want to mention some specific information about the above land and issue facing now,
1. Land Area- 4.2 Acre, Parental Agriculture Land , Situated in Rural Area of Nalanda ,Bihar. I got this land after division among 5 brothers of family.
I sold the above land in Aug-13 to my Elder Brother's Wife( My Bhabhi) in Rs. 38.54 Lakhs(as per paper) but received only 23 Lakhs due to family transaction. I didn't mention this in the ITR filed for the year.
With the above money and adding some extra in I purchased 26.48 Lakhs Flat in Ramgarh, Jharkhand in July-2015 in the name of My Spouse and DDA flat of Rs. 13.19 Lakhs in June-2015 at Delhi in the name of my Daughter. It amounted total of 39.67 Lakhs.
I got notice from IT department through mail on 28-oct-15 about mismatch of Information in ITR 1/4S filed by me and from source AIR form 61A from District Sub-Registry office, Dist. Registrar, Nalanda, Bihar mentioning that the information filed in ITR doesn't have information about the transfer of property. I had to respond if I have knowledge about this transfer of property or not ?I was given 15-Days time to respond about this mismatch which not responded. Again I got notice on 10-12-2015 with requirement of response till 20th Dec-2015. Which again i didn't responded. From then I got no notice.
I want to add some more information about property transaction done in Aug-12, I purchased 23.5 Dismil of around 23 Lakhs Agriculture Land in a Hethu village of Ranchi District of Jharkhand.
In view of above information and notice from IT department, How should I respond and what should I do to clear this issue with IT department to close the chapter.
