How to Calculate Long Term Capital Gain on Property/House Sale With Indexation Example.

Yes, both NRIs and Resident can remit the money obtained by selling properties in India, but you have to take a couple of things in your mind. For example, the sale proceeds amount must be deposited into NRO account, it cannot be deposited into NRE account. Similarly, you may be liable to pay the short term or long term capital gains while selling the property situated in India. If you are selling the property within 3 years of purchase then you need to pay short-term capital gain and if you are selling the house after 3 years then you have to pay long-term capital gains I India. In case you have inherited the property then the date of purchase and price of purchase of the previous owner will be used for calculation.
