Hello, My mother-in law who is a senior citizen is selling her house and has an LTCG of 18 lakhs post indexation. The sale would conclude by July 2016. We had some queries: 1. She had purchased another property in Feb 2015 and received possession in Feb 2016, wanted to know if she would be eligible for LTCG exemption...would the date of booking or date of possession considered here? The query is in reference to 1 year before and 2 years later period given to invest in another property to claim tax exemption. 2. If date of booking is considered, then exemption is not possible. We would then plan to invest in CG bonds like NHAI or REC within six months of sale. 3. For calculation of LTCG, would be following be allowed to be considered, under heading: "Exemption incurred wholly and exclusively in connection with such Transfer/sale"? a. Stamp Duty, Registration charges incurred during purchase of the old property. b. Interest and principal paid toward the loan taken to purchase the old property. 4. For items considered for calculating Indexed cost of Improvement like renovation etc. - would an bill showing the expenses be required...since it is likely to be not available for old property. Please advice.
