Dear Sir/Madam,

LTCG on Sale of Shares - Exempt u/s 10(38) if sale is routed through Stock Exchange and STT is paid...................

Loss from above transactions cannot be adjusted against any income......

Long term Capital loss on sale of shares not exempt u/s 10(38) can be set off against LTCG......

Please follow this link........

Dear Mam,

Ur understanding is correct,

Loss from the soucre where income is exempt has no tax treatment and is considered as Dead Loss..

Hence, LTCL on which STT stands paid at the time of sale will have no tax treatment.

(STT is charged when securities are sold on a Stock Exchange n to mutual funds in case of Equity Oriented Funds)
