Posted by Prashant Shah on May 13, 2011

Any profit or gain arising from the transfer of a capital asset during the Previous Year(PY) is chargeable to tax under the head ‘Capital Gains’ in the immediately following Assessment Year(AY) i.e. if you made gains in 2010-2011 (PY), it will be chargeable to tax in 2011-12(AY).

The Ultimate Combination of Philately and Numismatics

Posted by Prashant Shah on May 12, 2011

You must have heard the word, ‘synergy’. Which means, the working together of two things to produce an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects. So, what if Philately and Numismatics are clubbed together in your collection. As I am committed to give you the most innovative ideas, today I am giving you one synergistic idea. doesn’t it sound tempting? Obviously. See this:

The Stamp:

The FDC:

The Brochure:

The Coin:

Everything which I have displayed is commemorating 1000 years of Brihadeeswarar Temple and that is the ultimate and the most interesting part of it. Some of the private sellers are quoting a price very close to Rs.5000 for all the items. One more opportunity which you can have is of collecting the commemorative stamps and Rs.150 coin of Rabindranath Tagore but it is tough to get so catch it if you can. You must have enjoyed the The Ultimate Combination of Philately and Numismatics. Keep Collecting!!!
