The main reason for this is to simplify the system. Bajaj had said that the rate of capital gains tax and the holding period are complicated. The government has also made it. The holding period for capital gains tax is 24 months for real estate, 12 months for shares and 36 months for loans. In view of this huge gap, work needs to be done on it.
