  3. Hi Amit,
    Thanks a lot for selecting this topic. Very well explained and easy to understand.

  4. Anil Shinde says:

    its very valuable information to individual

  5. Some of the provisions are old dated and not correct for the current FY.
    Point No. 23: Property holding period has been reduced to 2 years.
    Point No. 22: In both the cases, whether rented or self occupied, the interest deduction is capped at Rs. 2.00 lakhs.
    Point No. 5 and 15 are inconsistent. In both the cases, for STCG, the holding period is 3 years while for LTCG for more than 3 years, the tax is 20% with indexation.
    It seems that this is an old post, relevant to earlier years and has been reproduced with/without author’s permission.
    Please check and revert back the latest status.

    • Thanks for pointing this out. This indeed was my old post which I republished – sorry for errors.
      Have changed the tax treatment related to rental & property which was proposed in Budget 2017.

      However taxation of NCD & Mutual Funds are correct in the post.

  6. You have covered almost all schemes and plans. But in respect of item 9 Senior citizen savings scheme, you have mentioned no TDS. I am to say that a TDS is recovered at 10% in this scheme also as like in FDs. Please make suitable corrections accordingly. Thank you
