What are the tax implications for SGBs on interest and capital gains?

  • Interest on SGBs are taxable as per provisions under the Income Tax Act, 1961.
  • Capital gains arising on the redemption of SGBs by an individual are exempt from tax.
  • Indexation benefits are provided for Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG) arising from transfer of SGBs to another holder.
