I have capital gain of 60 lakh this year, but the REC bond limit under section 54EC is 50 lakh per year. Since my gain was made in January 2010, I have until July 2010 (6 month limit) to buy the bonds to avoid paying the Capital Gains Tax.

Question is can I proect against the entire tax liability by purchasing say 40 lakh of bonds this tax year and another 20 lakh in say July 2010 (before I file my tax return) ? 

or do I have to pay the Capital Gains Tax this year on the excess over 50 lakh or whatever i can invest this year ? Any people with such experience ? Thank you in advance for correct advice.

Dear Mathur sir.........

We have already discussed whether we can invest above 50 lacs(50lacs before march and 50 lacs before july as you said) in 54 EC bonds.....but it is restricted to only 50 lacs.........

There are other sections or exemptions available for you......

If the LTCA is a Res.House then you have Sec. 54....

1. Section 54 - Transfer of Residential House and Purchase or construction of a new Res. house.....

If the LTCA is other than Res. House then you have sec 54 F and 54 EC....

2. Section 54 F - Transfer of Long Term Capital Asset (other than a Res. House ) but purchase / construction of a Res. house.

Before investment please go through the provisions of sections 54, 54 F and 54 EC........

Please follow this link too........

yes...its a right planning...bcoz as per section 54 EC ..an assessee is required to invest net consideration to the maximum of 50 lakhs in any F.Y. .

thus der could b good tax planning 100 lakhs.
