Can Capital Gain From Assets Be Kept in a Savings Account?
I sold my apartment on November 30, 2021 by signing up for a sale agreement. I received the sales balance after 3 months as the buyer has a bank loan and the disbursement will be done in 3 months. What is the deadline for me to pay capital gains tax? Should I pay within the same financial year i.e. 2021-22 or within six months of signing up for the purchase agreement or completing the entire transaction? Also, until I pay no capital gains tax, can the money be kept in my savings account? – Jagadish Shah

If the taxpayer is unable to invest the proceeds by the time of filing the tax return, the funds need to be deposited in the Capital Gains Account Plan.
Therefore, in your case because the agreement is registered in Novemberthe capital gain arising in this case will be taxable for fiscal year 2021-22 and you are required to pay the prior tax in the December term due on 15 December 2021 and in monthly installments 3 is due on March 15, 2022.
