  2. N Ravindranath says:

    While filling the data in long term capital gains in ITR 4, I entered all the relevant data on sale of house property in Section B 1a, and B1b and claimed deduction by enetering the data in B1 di.

    I have also entered the data in Schedule D of capital gains by giving the section 54 , amount claimed, cost of new asset ,date of its acquistion and construction, but left out the box asking particulars of amount deposited in capital gains account scheme, since there was no necessity for me to fill the box.(I have invested entire amount in new house under section 54 before the due date)

    However when I tried to validate the page, it is insiting that I should fill the box relating the amount deposited in capital gains account scheme, which is not correct, since in all cases depositing into capital gains deposit scheme would not arise. Will you please look into this?
