But how it can be possible, as LTCG on sale of shares of  listed company are exempt, so how can the loss on sale of such shares can be set off even it being an interhead set off????????

I thing ravi is right because long term capital gain on share of listed company is exempt u/s 10(38) if STT paid on the transaction and exempt income loss can not be set off and can not be carried forward. Therfore Listed company long term capital gain can not be sett of against profit of unlisted company long term capital gain.

DEAR FRIENDS, 

I WOULD LIKE TO BRING TO YOUR NOTICE THAT IF THE LOSS ON ACCOUNT OF SALE OF LISTED SHARES ARE SHORT TERM THEN ONLY HE CAN SET OFF AGAINST THE PROFIT ON SALE OF UNLISTED COMPANY. LONG TERM CAPITAL LOSS OF LISTED COMPANY SHARE CANNOT BE SET OFF BECAUSE THEY ARE EXEMPT U/S 10(38).THEREFORE IF A GAIN AMOUNT IS EXEMPT THEN IN THAT CASE LOSS AMOUNT WOULD ALSO BE EXEMPT.

Dear Dipak

Pls read through the following link (my post) : -

/forum/long-term-shares-173521.asp                 

                                    plus



Conclusion: -

1) As per the provisions of Income Tax Act, Long term Loss on sale of shares of a listed company sold through recognised stock exchange on which STT has been paid are NOT ALLOWED to be set off against ANY INCOME. Thus, you can not set it off against the LTCG generated on sale of Unlisted shares.

 

2) Other points for your knowledge only: -

a) LTCG on sale of shares of unlisted co are allowed to set off & carry forward

b) STCG on sale of shares are allowed to set off & carry forward IRRESPECTIVE OF PLATFORM OF SALE (i.e, whether shares are sold through recognised stock exchange or otherwise)

c) Shares held in DMAT A/c can be sold thorogh a mode other than stock exchange also

d) similarly, shares (of a listed co.) held in physical form (i.e, not in DMAT form) can also be sold through stock exchange.

 

For case (c) & (d) supra: -You can plan as per your case of computation & accordingly decide whether to sell your shares on different platforms (offcourse after conversion in mode of holding) (i.e, through stock exchange or otherwise) irrespective of mode of shares held (i.e, whether in DMAT or otherwise).....it all depends whether you need loss to set off or not.
