Removal of LTCG tax on equities is amongst the biggest expectations from retail investors. If not this, then at least the limit of ₹ 1lakh on tax-free gains limit should be increased. Such moves will certainly boost retail investor participation in equity investments.

Apart from this, STT has been a pain point for equity traders for a long time. It was introduced in 2004. With the LTCG and STCG already present, it becomes a strong case to abolish STT. This move can certainly encourage new investors to step into equity trading, boost capital market participation, and add considerable value to the economy.
