We bought a flat in 2002 for 17L possession of which was given in 2003. However, the registration (registration fees about 1.65L) was done in 2016, in my husband's name. My husband transferred the property to me via a gift deed in 2018. I am selling this property this year (2023) for 95L. What is the LTCG on this property on which I have to pay tax? What will be the date of acquisition and cost of acquisition to be considered on which indexation is to be done?

Ans: Hi,
There are lot of ambiguities in your query. Certain questions that are pertinent are as follows:

Was the Rs. 17 Lakhs fully paid in 2002?
How was the possesion given in 2003 without registration and it was done only in 2016?
What was the proportion of payment that was made by you individually and your husband?

The answers to this query would change based on inputs to the above questions. However, i will try to give a generic response to your queries

Indexed Cost of Rs. 17 Lakhs - Rs. 56,34,286
Indexed Cost of Rs. 1.65 Lakhs - Rs. 2,17,500
Total Indexed Cost - Rs. 58,51,786
Sale Consideration - Rs. 95 Lakhs
Long Term Capital Gain - Rs. 36,48,214

Most critical point here is that this capital gain would be taxed in the hands of your husband and not you as he has gifted the property to you without any monetary consideration. This is based on the clubbing provisions of the Income Tax Act
