    The concept of Cost Inflation Index was introduced in the year 1981 itself and it has not been released from assets purchased before 1981.

    To compute the Indexed Cost of Acquisition for properties purchased before 1981, you would be required to estimate the market value of the property as on 01-04-81 and then apply the cost inflation index to this market value.
