    The following is the time allowed for reinvestment for claiming exemption under the following sections of the income tax act:-
    • Section 54 - 2 years for purchase/ 3 years for construction of Residential House
    • Section EC - 6 months for investment in specified bonds
    • Section 54F - 2 years for purchase/ 3 years for construction of Residential House
    For more, kindly refer: http://www.charteredclub.com/section-54/

    This time period is to be considered from the date of Registry

    In the meantime, you can certainly invest these funds in FD or elsewhere and the income arising from such investment would be chargeable as per your income tax slabs.

    The capital gains arising on the sale of flat should be reinvested in a single flat only.

    This amendment is applicable from 1st April 2014
