Notes on Clauses:

Clause 15 of the Bill seeks to amend section 47 of the Income-tax Act relating to transactions not regarded as transfer.

The said section, inter alia, provides that any transfer of a capital asset by the predecessor co-operative bank to the successor co-operative bank in a case of business reorganisation shall not be regarded as transfer.

It is proposed to amend clause (vica) of the said section to expand the scope of the said clause so as to provide that any transfer of a capital asset by the primary co-operative bank which has been converted into a banking company as a result of conversion shall not be considered as transfer for the purposes of capital gains.

Further, it is also proposed to amend clause (vicb) of the said section so as to provide that the allotment of shares of the converted banking company to the shareholders of the predecessor co-operative bank as a result of this conversion shall not be treated as transfer for the purposes of capital gains.

It is also proposed to amend the Explanation to clause (vicb) of the said section so as to provide that the expression “converted banking company” shall have the meaning assigned to it in section 44DB.

These amendments will take effect from 1st April, 2021 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2021-2022 and subsequent assessment years.

It is proposed to insert new clauses (viiac) and (viiad) in the said section so as to provide that any transfer, in relocation, of a capital asset by the original fund to the resultant fund shall not be considered as transfer for the purpose of Capital gains tax. It is further proposed that the allotment of shares of the resultant fund to the shareholders of the original fund as a result of this relocation shall not be treated as transfer for the purpose of capital gains.

It is also proposed to define the expressions “original Fund”, “relocation” and “resultant fund”.

These amendments will take effect from 1st April, 2022 and will, accordingly, apply in relation to the assessment year 2022-2023 and subsequent assessment years.
