U have to show this loss under CAPITAL GAIN Schedule as short term loan

But u have to submit the return in time as per section 139(1) of income tax act.

There is no requirement to attach any documentary proof with the return.

Only u have to maintain ur demat a/c statement for future reference.

Dear for claiming STCL 1st of all u hv to file ITR on time as specified u?s 139(1).

for claiming Loss u should hv Purchase and sale bills of share from approved recognised stock exchange. it will be needed only at the time of Scrutiny assessment. no requirement of attaching any evidences with ITR.

STCL will be shown under the head of Income from Capital Gain. STCL can be set off with any other taxable gain of the same year. or any other income if there is no sufficient gain in Capital gain head.

it can also be carry forwarded for next 8 AY if couldnt set-off in current year.

STCL or any other type of loss can not be adjusted with salary income

you have option to carry forward the same for adjustment in future years ( max upto 8 years)

short term capital loss can be setoff against any capital gains It cannot be set off against any other head However if the nature of transactions in capital market are such that it can be attributed to Businee loss then it can be set off
