There are definitely few bugs in Schedule CG which need to be fixed before due date. 1. Item b4-d : LTCG after threshold limit as per section 112A(4c-Rs 1 lakh) is disabled. 2. Item b4-f : LTCG on sale of capital assets at B4 above (4c-4e) is wrong and it should have been (4d-4e) 3. Due to above bugs, any positive LTCG <1 lakh or above 1 Lakh is carried forward to other schedules n taxed accordingly without considering threshold limits. 4. These two bugs were not there in earlier revision PR1.2. 5. These bugs need to be fixed immediately to enable taxpayers file ITR before due date.

I thought CAclubindia is the forum which will take up such cases with incometaxindia but there's no comments or acknowledgement for this issue from them. Not sure if any of the executive committee members have even read it, not to say about following it up with incometaxindia. May have to raise in grievance redressal at incometaxindia e-filing site ourselves or keep quiet n leave it on incometaxindia to find out themselves.

Nirmal Bhansali ji, I also came across this bug and was searching if anyone came across this issue and reported it. Glad that I cam across your comment, this assures me of the issue. Have you raised grievance on incometaxindia e-filing site? Now that deadline is extended til 30th Aug for tax filing, hopefully they fix this bug soon. If its not fixed then we will have to unnecessary pay 10% tax on the first 1 Lakh amount too. Were you able to find any workaround?

I filed my ITR before it was revised on 11th July n this bug was not there in last revision. My request is for CAclub India forum to take up with authorities to resolve the issue. In case they fail to take up this responsibility, u may lodge grievance on e-filing site with your own PAN to CPC or web manager and wait for their response cum action. I have not taken up as I m not an affected party. Thanks and regards.

Hi - I called the ITR helpdesk and explained the issue cited here. They requested to send the details to efilinghelpdesk @ incometax.gov.in
I have just sent an email along with screenshot.
Let's see what solution is provided now.
My suggestion would be that those affected should contact them as well so the helpdesk get sufficiently aware of this and could resolve this quickly.

I had called up Income tax helpdesk regarding Rs.1 lakh, LTCG after threshold limit as per section 112A
I understood that the greyed out cell on this for removing Rs.1 Lack from long term capital gain in CG sheet will be adjusted in SPI_SI sheet. So there is no major issue.
But, there is 1 minor issue, Because this is not adjusted in CG sheet, it will compute the advance tax payable and charged 234C (Interest for deferment of advance tax) in my case. I ignored this because this was small amount

UPDATE - Here is the reply received from helpdesk:
"As per the provisions of Income Tax Act, 1961 the exemption of Rs.1,00,000 should be provided while calculating Tax and not for the purpose of computing Income. Therefore for complying with the same in Utility the exemption field of Rs.1,00,000 provided in Schedule CG has been greyed-off(Tag “LessLTCGThresholdLimit” has been removed and the same shall be provided while computing Tax in Schedule SI so that the true intention of law can be complied with."
QUERY - I am still unclear how to accommodate this in the ITR2 utility. I have Rs 9601 of STCL from AY 2018-2019 which I have filled in Schedule CFL to carry forward. Then, I have LTCG of Rs 16897 in this year which has been filled in Schedule CG (which should be non-taxable since it is under the threshold limit).
Now the excel utility is setting-off these two figures and remaining Rs 7296 (16897-9601) are being shown as current year’s income remaining after set off. This is incorrect, because I should be able to carry forward the full amount of STCL (Rs 9601) for next year, and no set-off should be done as Rs 1,00,000 of LTCG is tax exempt. Please note - while calculating tax from the utility, the net tax turns out to be correct (it considers exemption in background) - however, the STCL can not be carried forward and unnecessarily getting adjusted i.e. Total loss Carried Forward to future years = Zero
Can someone here provide any suggestion on how to resolve this considering the reply from helpdesk i.e. how to fill this information in Schedule SI ?

Helpdesk response is evasive and they don't want to admit that there are serious bugs in their software which is definitely there. If you have a positive ltcg less or more than one lakh, it would go directly to computation of income tax n taxed. Best course of action is e-Nivaran in e-filing site, fill up e-Nivaran form for action by Commissioner, CPC or Web Manager. Helpdesk will only pass the buck but do nothing. Best wishes.

After the recent utility changes, department has shifted the exemption of Rs. 1,00,000 from Schedule CG to Schedule SI.
assume your Capital gain before exemption is Rs. 2,50,000. Then 2,50,000 will be transferred to Schedule SI but tax on such income will be calculated after providing exemption of Rs. 1,00,00.
so final tax will be (2,50,000-1,00,000)*10%=15,000
*Ignoring basic exemption limit.
