May, 10th 2016

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had set the cat among the pigeons before this year’s budget by pointing out in a speech that “dividends and long-term capital gains on shares traded in stock exchanges are totally exempt from income tax, even though it is not the poor who earn them”.

Income-tax data shows that for assessment year 2012-13, a mere 6.9% of individual income taxpayers declared long-term capital gains.

Moreover, Two-Thirds Of Total Long-Term Capital Gains Were Declared By 4,032 Individuals Who Had Gains Of Over Rs.1 Crore During The Year. In Short, The Zero Tax On Long-Term Capital Gains Benefits Primarily The Very Rich. The Chart Has The Details.
