  1. In case of sale of jewellery, whole amount of consideration needs to be invested (not just capital gains) into new residential property.
  2. Possession/Registration must be done for new flat before end of two years from sale of asset.
  3. If new property is not bought before filing return, amount should be invested into capital gain account scheme.
  4. Agreement to sale and payment receipt to builder/seller will be considered as proof for investment in residential house, but registration should be done before end of two years.
  5. If there is amount left from asset sale consideration and what is paid to builder/seller, then it has to be invested into capital gain account scheme before filing return.
  6. He cannot own more than one residential property at the time of buying new flat. Also cannot sell this new flat for next three years and cannot buy any other residential property in next three years.
