I have sold old house which was purchased in 1992-93. From the sale proceeds I have paid some money for new flat which is under construction. Balance payment will be made in 2 installments in next 2 years. Till that time, I have deposited the remaining amount from sale proceeds in SBI’s savings account. Can I keep this money in my account?
You cannot keep this amount in normal savings bank account for more than 6 months of the date of sale. Open a Capital Gain Saving Scheme account and deposit the money there. Money will be withdrawable on demand.
