    Tax on sale of Short Term Capital Gains arising on the sale of Listed Shares is taxable @ 15%.

    However, as she does not have any other income - she can make use of the unused income tax slabs which say that No Tax would be levied on Income upto Rs. 2,50,000

    On the income above 2,50,000 i.e. Rs. 50,000 in your case - Tax Rate of 15% of Profit arising on sale of Shares would be levied.
