Calculation of Long Term Capital Gain using CII

From the sale value of a long term capital asset, the indexed cost of acquisition is deducted to get long term capital gain. To calculate indexed cost of acquisition, the actual Cost of acquisition is divided by the CII of the year of purchase and then multiplied by the CII of the year of sale. Section 48 covers above provisions.

For example, a land was purchased for Rs. 100000/- on 01.05.2012 and sold on 10.04.2021 for Rs. 500000/-. Now, the CII of 2012-13 is 200 and of 2021-22 is 317. So, the indexed Cost of acquisition will be (100000/200) x 317 = Rs. 158500/-. Hence, the capital gain will be 500000 – 158500 = Rs. 341500/-.
