situations wherein the recently imposed capital gains tax would apply
even though no Securities Transactions Tax (STT) are being paid. Cases
where no STT is paid but new capital gains tax regime will be imposed are
bonus shares, policy compliant foreign investment, shares acquired via a
will or inheritance, court or regulator approved acquisition, shares
acquired under insolvency resolution and those under government
disinvestment. The tax rate would be 10% and the rule will be applicable
from Apr 2019. In cases where new capital gains tax could not be paid,
such gains will be clubbed with total income and will become eligible for
higher tax.
