What is Indexation?

Indexation is the process that inflates the purchase price of the asset to take into account the impact of inflation considering the time of purchase & sell

Every year government declares Cost Inflation Index (CII) which is used to measure the rate of inflation in the economy

Let’s look at an example

Bought Debt Fund in the year 2013-14 (CII = 939) for Rs 10 lakh.

Sold Debt Fund in the year 2016-17 (CII = 1125) for Rs 12.95 lakh.

Indexed cost is calculated as – Cost of purchase * CII of the year of sell / CII of the year of purchase 1000000*1125/939, which comes to 11,98,083.07

Long Term Tax liability will be Rs.96916.93 (Rs.1295000 – Rs.1198083.07)
