 To know speculative business, we should first know what is speculative transaction.

As Per Sec 43 (5), Speculative Transaction means a transaction in which a contract of purchase or sale of any commodity including stocks and shares, is periodically or ultemately settled otherwise than by the actual delivery or transfer of the commodity or scriptts.

 

It is to be noted that profit or loss from derivative trading carried out through a recognized stock exchange shall not be treated as profit or loss from speculative business. However, derivative trading in commedities shall continue to be treated as speculative transaction.

 If it is held that the transaction in derivatives does not fall in section 43(5), it will make clause (d) and Explanation thereto below section 43(5) introduced by Finance Act, 2005 to be redundant.Derivatives will also fall within meaning of ‘commodity’ used in section 43(5) of IT Act, 1961
