I used to be a retail investor in mounted deposit and NCD of a NBFC whose debt decision course of concluded lately. My FD of Rs 3 lakh was made in July 2017 for 48 months however I acquired solely Rs 73,000 in Sept 2021. I additionally had been allotted NCDs of Rs 3.28 lakh of their IPO in August 2016 whose maturity was due in August 2019 and I acquired Rs 1.6 lakh in September 2021. Can I declare long-term capital loss?
Capital gain or loss can solely come up when there’s a ‘transfer’ of capital asset. Fixed deposits made with an NBFC can’t be transferred for a consideration. There aren’t any provisions beneath the Income Tax Act for claiming loss of deposits in case of insolvency of a non-banking finance company. The quantity of loss suffered by you on deposits should not be claimed as a deduction and will be construed as lifeless loss. Further, because the listed NCDs had been held by you for a interval exceeding one year, the loss in respect of NCDs will be deemed to be “long-term capital loss”. Such loss can be set-off against long-term capital features. Unadjusted loss, if any, can be carried ahead to the next eight evaluation years.
Is availing a house mortgage to save lots of tax a sound choice? I exhaust every little thing beneath 80C and make investments beneath NPS.
A deduction as much as `1.5 lakh is permitted beneath part 80C on account of principal compensation of residence mortgage taken for buy/ building of home property. In addition, taxpayers can declare deduction in respect of curiosity borrowed for acquisition, building, restore or reconstruction of a home property from the earnings computed beneath the top “house property”. In case of let-out property, there is no such thing as a financial cap on quantity of deception.
Deduction of curiosity in respect of self-occupied home property is as much as Rs 2 lakh, which is decreased to Rs 30,000 if building is just not accomplished inside a interval of 5 years. Besides, you can declare deduction of curiosity for pre-construction interval in 5 consecutive instalments, from the year through which the property is acquired or constructed. Although you might not be in a position to declare deduction in respect of principal compensation of residence mortgage on account of exhaustion of prescribed restrict, you should still get benefitted by claiming deduction of curiosity ingredient.
