A profit from sale of property or an investment is known as capital gain.
Land is a capital asset. Gain earned from that capital asset is capital gain. In India, Agricultural land is not considered as capital asset, hence exemption cannot be granted on the same from tax imposition. However, under section 10(37) of the income tax act, capital gains on compensation received on compulsory acquisition of agricultural land is exempted from tax.
Capital gain is a rise in the value of the property that gives it a higher worth than the purchase price. A capital gain maybe short-term (one year or less) or long-term (more than one year). Tax exemption is allowed on capital gain if the gain earned is long-term. If Long-term capital gain from sale of residential property is re-invested in agricultural land, no exemption will be granted for that LTCG.
It is granted under section 54F of the Income tax Act.
