I bought a property in Delhi in 1994 for 2 lakh....i sold in 2023 for 66 lakh....what will be my capital gain? I spent around 10 lakhs on the intetiors,renovation etc...but never thought of selling so do not have any bills etc....pl advice

Ans: To calculate your capital gain, you'll first need to determine the cost of acquisition and the cost of improvement.

Cost of Acquisition:
The property was bought in 1994 for 2 lakh.

Cost of Improvement:
You spent around 10 lakh on interiors and renovation.

Indexed Cost of Acquisition:
To adjust for inflation, calculate the indexed cost of acquisition using the Cost Inflation Index (CII) for the year of purchase and the year of sale.

Capital Gain = Selling Price - (Indexed Cost of Acquisition + Cost of Improvement)

Once you subtract the indexed cost of acquisition and the cost of improvement from the selling price, you'll get your capital gain. Consult a tax advisor for accurate calculations and implications.

Sir I bought a residential property for 2,05 lakh(including regisrty etc) in Dec 1994,sold it in November 2023 for 6600000....and spent around ten lakhs over these thirty years on renovation time to time....what is the amount of capital gain on this..
Ans: Based on the information you provided, the capital gain on your property sale would be Rs. 6,395,000.

Here's a breakdown of the calculation:

Factor Amount
Sale price of the property Rs. 6,600,000
Cost price (including registry etc.) Rs. 2,05,000
Renovation expenditure (capped at Rs. 2 lakh) Rs. 2,00,000
Indexed cost price (not available) Rs. 2,05,000 (assumed)
Capital gain Rs. 6,395,000


Please note that this is an estimated calculation. The actual capital gain might differ depending on the following factors:

Indexed cost price: If you have data on the inflation index for the period you held the property, you can calculate the indexed cost price which can reduce the capital gains.
Actual renovation expenditure: The calculation considers a maximum deduction of Rs. 2 lakh for renovation expenses. If your documented renovation expenditure is less than Rs. 2 lakh, the capital gain will be slightly higher.
Other selling expenses: Selling expenses like agent commission or brokerage fees can further reduce the capital gains.
It's recommended to consult a tax advisor for a more precise calculation considering your specific situation and claiming any applicable deductions. They can also advise you on the tax implications of the sale.
