Default Tax implications while selling a property

I am planning to sell a unit of 1500 sq ft:

Details are

original booking: 2200
Selling price - 5250

Brokers are asking for a cash and a cheque component. I need to understand how can i get exempt from tax in the event of making a profit. I also have another property in mind which I am planning to buy as soon as possible. Can i get a tax exemption in this case for the amount that i receive in cheque over and above the booking rate.

Thanks.

HI Munish,
  • Thanks so much for your reply. The construction is complete and as of now registry is in progress. Assuming that registration is complete and then I sell, for any preimum received in cheque, please suggest if tax needs to be paid?
  • My plan is to reinvest this money asap into another property as I am planning to diversy my properties
