My mother, who is 55 years old, has recently sold a land that she bought 15 years back for 35 Lakhs. She is a pensioner and don’t want to reinvest on another property. My questions are
You can learn more about these bonds here
note you need to pay tax on interest earned
You need to invest WITHIN 6 months. Bank will not question the source of the money.
However if you are going to invest please keep all documentation safe because tomorrow there could be inquiry from the IT dept. If you show them proof of purchase of these bonds there should not be any problem
Thanks for your reply. The link that you have provided was really helpful. If she wants to save capital gain tax by investing on NHAI or REC bonds within time frame of 6 months, whether banks will allow her to keep the money in her bank account? Does she need to provide any proof to the banks that source of the money is from land sale and will be investing the money on capital gain bonds after six months?
Yes, She should pay tax. you can see how to do calculate this here
At 55 she must plan for a life expectancy of at least 80 year. The income from this money should add to her pension and compensate for increase in expenses due to inflation.
20-30% in equities for compounding over long period.
rest spread across tax free bonds, FDs post office mis
and some portion in long-term income and gilt debt funds
another option is to create a small health corpus for her future assuming she has enough mediclaim cover now
