16 June 2021 If the land is a capital asset per section 2(14) capital gains attracts in this case for which sale consideration has to be Rs.9,85,400 per section 50C. Like wise for 54F calculation sale consideration has to be Rs. 9,85,400 ,to be on the safer side, since law is not clear on this issue. If calculation is done as above, tax liability will be 30,914 assuming Mr. A has no other income. He can claim rebate Rs. 12,500 per section 87A . Thus the tax payable ,along with cess Rs.737 and interest per section 234B Rs. 573 ,comes to Rs. 19,724.
16 June 2021 Further, if the agricultural land is situated in rural area, it is not a capital asset as per sec 2(14) and hence no tax liability on capital gain.
