How are Gilt Funds taxed?
A Gilt fund will attract capital gains tax if the redemption value is more than the purchase price. The gains can either be short term or long term in nature.
If you hold units for 3 years or less, the gains made are subject to Short-Term Capital Gains Tax and are taxed as per your income slab. If you hold the units for more than three years, the gains are subject to Long-Term Capital Gains Tax which is taxed at 20% and you would get the benefit of indexation (available to debt funds). Indexation accounts for the effect of inflation in the acquisition purchase cost i.e. the purchase price is increased to adjust for inflation (using an index provided by the Government) before calculating the capital gain. Thus, it reduces the overall tax liability.
