Hello Sir,

Is it permissible in the act, to purchase of agricultural land from the Capital Gain that is incurred on selling  of  house in city limits. I have been told that you can again invest the amount (CG) only in purchase of another house or some commercial property.Govt. bonds is a different issue.The house mentioned above was not self occupied…it was on rent.

    Dear Malik, the tax benefit under section 54 is available only for purchase of a new readymade house or to construct one. Sorry agriculture land purchase ‘ll not save you capital gain tax.

    Thanks
