Query 1]
Sir, I have two house properties in Gujarat (Kutch & Ahemdabad) purchased by me in the year 1978 & 1982. I wish to sale the same in the current year. The capital gain roughly calculated on the above flat sell is around Rs. 43 Lacs & Rs. 67 Lacs respectively.

The flat is intended to be purchased by me with my son name as the co-owner in each of the flat separately. I have following queries for which I seek your guidance:

Query 1]
Sir, I am in the Company which got listed last year at NSE & BSE. The Company is having Employees Welfare Trust before its got listed in NSE & BSE. Employees Welfare Trust is holding shares of the Company since more than 5 to 6 years. Now Employees Welfare Trust is offering shares to employees (based on their tenure, performance & designation) at a discounted rate (say Rs. 15) as compared to the market rate around Rs. 200 on the date of transaction.

Or, it will be taxable as and when I will sale…

“IS IT MANDATORY TO FILE THE ITR WITH DIGITAL SIGNATURE NOW?”
Query 1]
I have a query. Kindly provide me your opinion. I had purchased a property from a builder. I had made part/full payment to the builder. But due to some reasons I did not register the property. Now I wish to sell the property. The purchaser would make me the payment and the builder would come for the registration to register the property directly in favor of new buyer. I want to know whether the profit arising from the transaction would be considered as Capital Gain or as Income from Other Source? Kindly elaborate with section under the Income Tax Act. [Rahul Agarwal- keepwalkingalways@ gmail.com]
Opinion:
It appears that you have purchased the flat and the possession of the flat was handed over to you by the builder. Due to some technical or procedural lapses, the sale deed appears to have not been executed in your favor. Since the prop…

“MCX PROFIT- WHETHER SPECULATIVE?”
Query 1]
Sir, what is the right procedure to compute Income Tax on MCX transactions (Profit or Loss)? Is it a speculative profit or loss? Income of a salaried Senior Citizen from Salary and all other sources is Rs. 2 Lacs. His profit from MCX transactions of Silver is Rs. 75,000/- & from Sugar is Rs. 25,000/-. What will be his tax liability? [srf.fatnani@yahoo.co.in]
Opinion:
1. The Central Government has notified NSE, BSE, MCX stock exchanges & United Stock Exchange of India Ltd as a recognized stock exchange for the purpose of section 43(5) as a result, the profit/loss in MCX is not considered as a speculative profit/loss. The expenses incurred like brokerage, transaction charges are deductible expenses while working out the profit/ loss from the transactions.
2. The total income of the senior citizen mentioned in the query is of Rs. 3 Lacs. It is presumed that t…
