  • the sale, exchange or relinquishment of the asset
  • the extinguishment of any rights therein
  • the compulsory acquisition thereof under any law
  • in a case where the asset is converted by the owner thereof into, or is treated by him as, stock-in-trade of a business carried on by him, such conversion or treatment
  • the maturity or redemption of a zero coupon bond
  • any transaction involving the allowing of the possession of any immovable property to be taken or retained in part performance of a contract of the nature referred to in section 53A36of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882
  • any transaction (whether by way of becoming a member of, or acquiring shares in, a co-operative society, company or other association of persons or by way of any agreement or any arrangement or in any other manner whatsoever) which has the effect of transferring, or enabling the enjoyment of, any immovable property.

However capital gains will arise at time of redemption of units or opting out of scheme as the case may be. Circular no. 6/2015
