If the markets were disappointed there was no mention about scrapping of LTCG tax, there is something to celebrate about. In Union Budget 2022, the government provided a ceiling on the surcharge on LTCG tax at 15%. As a result, the long term capital gains tax impact on equities will now be capped at 11.5% overall including surcharge. This is likely to reduce the overall impact of LTCG tax for persons in the higher income groups.
