Dear All

I have a case where the assessee is a NRI and he has only income from capital gains in the previous year. Can he claim basic exemption limit of Rs 1,50,000 on such transaction?

No exemption is only for residents only

Thanks for such a speedy reply. If you don't mind can I also have some case law/reference under the Act where it is specific there is no exemption.
