1. Short Term in case of debt funds is defined as less than or equal to 3 years.

2. Long Term in case of debt funds is defined as more than 3 years.

3. Short term gain formula:

Short term capital gain = Amount realised - Amount invested

Short term capital gain tax = Short term capital gain * Tax rate of the investor

4. Long term gain formula:

Indexed cost of acquisition = Amount invested * (Index in Year of redemption / Index in year of investment)

Long term capital gain = Amount realised - Indexed Cost of Acquisition

Long term capital gain tax = Long term capital gain (post indexation) @ 20%
