DelhiDesk The article is a response to a reader’s query about the capital gains tax implications of selling a house that was constructed in 2014 on a plot originally owned by their father. The reader’s mother gifted the house to their NRI daughter in 2016, and now the daughter intends to gift it back to the reader in 2023 for sale. The article advises that the date on which the father became the owner of the property will be considered for the purpose of indexation of cost and calculation of capital gains. The reader will be allowed to reduce the indexed cost of acquisition from the selling price and can also consider the cost of improvement made and index that according to the year in which the improvement was made and reduce it from the sale price to arrive at capital gains. The capital gains will be taxed at 20% after indexation, but the reader can save tax on these capital gains by investing them to purchase a new house or buying capital gains bonds or depositing the money in a capital gains account scheme and complying with the stipulations to claim an exemption from tax on capital gains.
