    Does this depreciation rate also applied to used (second hand) car purchase in this period.? or only for the New car purchase ?

  5. CA Darshan says:

    Yes, with this, the rate is changed. As the rate of block of asset is changed, the same will be as per the IT rules. i.e. if used for less than 180 days, half of the rate.and for next year also, the block rate will be 30%
