It means winding up of the company.

On winding up, the assets of the company are sold. Payment made for liabilities.

If some amount left after paying for liabilities, it is distributed to shareholders

 

There are 2 events

1.Distribution of asset by Company to Shareholders

This is not regarded as transfer and hence no Capital Gain imposed in this Case

 

2. Sale of Assets by Shareholder

In this case,  Capital Gain is applicable
