Taxability of Different Incomes

Income Tax
Income from Other Sources

Example

Suppose we purchase 4000 Mutual Funds units  @ 10 each on 10 June i.e. Rs 40000

We are allotted 1000 Bonus Mutual Funds Units on 14 June

So now we have 5000 Mutual funds units at a cost of 40000 (Rs 8 per Mutual Fund)

What is tax treatment if

We sell on 17 June  Whole 5000 Mutual funds Units @ Rs 8,

We sell on 17 June Only  4000 Mutual funds @ Rs 8,

We sell on 17 June Only  4400 Mutual funds Units @ Rs 8,

What is the record date in above cases

Section 94(8)

If a person purchases units of Mutual Fund  within 3 months before record date

And earns bonus unit on it

And sells such original units (whether whole or in part) within 9 months of such date

While continuing to hold all or any of the bonus units

Then loss on sale of such units shall be ignored

This Loss ignored will be cost of purchase of additional units

Note: - If bonus unit also sold then this section not applicable.

This Section is only applicable in case of Mutual Fund Units and not Shares

What is the taxable treatment

Q2
