Can 54 F be claimed on Reconstruction and Remodelling of Kitchen

This query is : Resolved 

28 March 2023 Mr A purchased the house property in FY 2022-23. The property was occupied earlier by other owner.
Mr A is eligible for exemption under section 54F for the investment in this house property.

Other than the cost of acquisition, he also spent Rs 10,00,000 as follows (after purchase but before residing in the property) –
1) Rs 7,00,000 on Reconstruction and Remodelling of Kitchen – For this purpose the kitchen was completely taken apart and then remodelled.
2) Rs 3,00,000 on construction of new room.
Can Mr A add Rs 10,00,000 spent as above to the cost of acquisition or cost of improvement and claim 54F on this amount as well.

28 March 2023 As per act, it cannot be added for sec. 54F deduction.
Yes, it can be capitalized as cost of improvement.
