Yes it can be set off

Yes it can be set off . According to Income tax Act, other than capital gains the other 4 heads of income can be set off in any combination what so ever.

In case of Capital Gains.

Short term capital losses:- can be set off with long term capital gains.

Long term capital losses:- can be set off with another gross up of both short term and long term capital gains.

Hope now your doubt in clarified.

If you in - turn have any more doubts on set off read section 70 of Income Tax Act,

hey evry1 thnx a lot for th responses
but th thing i can not get is i m a reading the book by Mr. Girish Ahuja n it says k it cannot be set off,(why that so,reason i cannot get)
I am not doubting all yours knoeledge but th thing is k is there a diffence between the treatment of "loss from maintance of RACE HORSES n that of HORSE RACE"
plz dont mind n respond

Loss from owning and maintaining race horses [Section 74A] :- Any loss arising from owning and maintaining race horses can be set off against income from such activity only in the same assessment year or in subsequent assessment years (in case of carry- forward). In case of this loss, it is allowed to be carried forward up to four assessment years.
Concluson : Loss under any head can be set off against speculative income, capital gain income, income from maintaining race horses. But the reverse is not possible. Loss from speculation, loss under capital gain and loss from maintaining race horses can be set off only against the respective specific income. In other words, loss from speculation can be set off only against speculation income. Loss from capital gain can be set off only against capital gains income and so on.

A loss from any source cannot be set off against winnings from lotteries, crossword puzzles, races (including horse races), card games, other games or any sort of gambling or betting. Loss on bonus stripping/dividend stripping cannot be set off against any income. Return of loss must be filed within due date of filing of return or else carry-forward of loss to the subsequent year is not allowed. However, this condition does not apply in case of house property loss and unabsorbed depreciation.
