    My question is
    1. Does this attract Income Tax ?
    2. If yes
    - what is the rate of interest & Tax is applicable on what amont
    - is there a way to avoid tax
    - say by investing in property (land) in individual capacity or in joint with other family members.
    - by investing in tax saving bonds - if so what is a suitable scheme.

    Kindly provide sthese information.

    1. Yes, this will attract Capital Gains Tax. If this property has been held for more than 3 years - the rate of tax would be 20% on the gains that arise on sale of this property. For conputation of gains, kindly refer -
    2. If you reinvest the gains in another residential property or in specified bonds - you can claim exemption from payment of capital gains tax. For more on this, kindly refer -
    3. To claim exemption you may either invest in your indicidual name or in joint name.
    Feel free to ask in case of any further queries.
