easy way to understand capital gain

Example for use of index:

Suppose Mr. A purchased plot at Rs. 10,000 in the year 2001-02. He sold the plot in the financial year 2014-15 for Rs. 3,00,000.

Gain: gain is long term because asset is held for more than 36 months. So we can use index table.

Capital gain = sale value less indexed cost of acquisition.

sale value = Rs. 3,00,000

Indexed cost = purchase price/ cost inflation index for year of purchase * CII for year of sale

= 10,000/426*1024 = Rs. 24037

Capital gain = Rs. 275963.

Who notified  capital gain index?

It is notified by central government every year with regards to 75% of CPI for urban non manual employees for the previous year.

Cost inflation index for properties purchased before 1981?

When property has purchased before 1981, fair market value of property on 1/4/1981 should be computed and CII of 1981 – 100 should be considered to compute indexed cost of acquisition.

Example:

Suppose land was purchased in 1976 for Rs. 12000. It is sold in financial year 2013-14 for 12,00,000. Fair market value on 1/4/81 is 22000. In this case, we compute long term capital gain as per following.

[table id=22 /]

Note: To compute capital gain, fair market value as on 1/4/1981 or actual purchase value, whichever is more can be considered for cost of acquisition.
