S. 54F: Deposit in capital gains account scheme by s. 139(4) due date sufficient

The assessee sold property on 20.06.2006 (AY 2007-08) for a consideration of Rs. 2.24 crores. The said amount was not invested in the capital gains account scheme by the due date of filing the return u/s 139(1) (31.07.2007) and was instead used to purchase a new residential house on 31.3.2008. The assessee claimed exemption u/s 54F which was denied by the AO & CIT(A) on the basis that u/s 54F(4) the amount of the consideration which is not appropriated for purchase of the new asset before the date of furnishing the return of income u/s 139 had to be deposited in the “capital gains account scheme” before the due date for filing the return of income u/s 139(1). On appeal by the assessee, the Tribunal allowed the claim. On appeal by the department to the High Court, HELD dismissing the appeal:

Though s. 54F(4) provides that the amount not appropriated towards purchase of the new asset has to be deposited in the capital gains account scheme before the due date for filing the return u/s 139(1), sub-section (4) of s. 139 is in the nature of a proviso to s. 139(1). S. 139(4) provides that a person who has not furnished a return within the time allowed to him under s. 139(1) may furnish the return at any time before the expiry of one year from the end of the relevant assessment year or before the completion of the assessment whichever is earlier. For AY 2007-08, the last date for filing the return u/s 139(4) is 31.3.2009. This extended time limit is available for making deposit in the capital gains account scheme. As the assessee had invested the consideration in purchase of a new house before that date, the exemption has to be allowed (Jagriti Aggarwal 339 ITR 610 (P&H), Rajesh Kumar Jalan 286 ITR 274 & Fathima Bai (Kar) followed)
