    I sold a property and put the amount in Capital gains Account.
    Now, if i am going to invest the amount in a new property
    1. Then what is the time period in which the house should be constructed ?
    2. If the builder , is not able to hand over the possession in the specified time frame, then what happens?

    Dear Rahul

    Please clarify that are you buying a property or are you constructing a property.

    The time allowed is 3 years in case you are constructing a property.

    However, in case you are buying a property, time allowed is 2 years

    Dear Rahul

    In this case, you are not doing construction but are purchasing an under-construction building.

    If the Purchase Deed is registered before 2 years, you will get the exemption irrespective of the date of completion.

    This a new project from the builder. The construction will start in a month. SO it means it is a new construction. Please correct me , if i am wrong

    It does not matter if its a new construction or old construction.

    You can claim exemption for any residential property.
