@Bharti_Vasvani Can you help here?

Hello @jaydalwadi,

When shares are gifted to relatives as per the income tax act, the date and cost of acquisition are taken of the original owner of such securities. In this case, it is as good as shares were never transferred by you. Hence you can report the capital gains by classifying them as long-term gains (as they are held for more than 12 months) and the purchase price paid by you as the acquisition cost.

Hope this helps!
