Liability for capital gain arises when title of the property is transferred to the buyer and it has no relevance with the payment of sale consideration. If sale deed is executed and all rights of property are transferred to the buyer on 20/03/2023,. capital gain on such property will be taxable in the F.Y.2022-23 and benefit of section 54B can be availed.
