Entering Short-term capital loss from equity for carry forward in ITR-2

Dear Pankaj, In FY 2013-14, I suffered STCL from equity shares on which STT is paid. Now, In ITR-2, Section- A2ia of Schedule CG does not allow negative values (minimum is zero). My question is: where can I enter this loss, so that the adjustment (with STCG or LTCG) could be done in future years? (I just couldn't find a place in any other schedule, where the loss values could be entered!). Thanks in advance, for help with this small technical issue.

You have enter selling price in 2-ia in sheet CG and purchase price under 2-ib-i. This would now show a negative value in 2-ie.

This carry forward short term loss now would be visible in CFL sheet under xi row as 2014-15 (Current year losses).
