POSTED BY Ravikiran Bhilare ON June 28, 2012 11:27 am COMMENTS (2)

I had a query regarding LTCG(Long term capital gain)

I had purchased a flat in Mumbai for Rs. 277000/- in year 1992 got the possesion from the builder in 1997.
I sold the same flat for Rs. 2500000/- on 22/3/2012. I am going to invest the amount in the new Residential house but it will still take 3-4 months to final the new house.

It would be very helpful is you could please let me know how much amount i should invest in Capital gain account and also by what date?
It would be great if you could share the calculations.

  1. Dear Ravi, Here is the calculation for LTCG.

    Year of purchase = 1992-93
    CII of purchase year = 223
    Purchase price = 277000
    Sell year = 2001-2012
    CII of sell year = 785
    Indexed purchase price = 277000*785/223 = 975000
    Sell price = 2500000
    Indexed Long Term Capital Gains = 2500000 – 975000 = 1525000

    So you need to invest 1525000 Rs. in Cap. Gain saving account. Please do it before filing your ITR.
