S. 45 : Capital gains – Transfer – Power of attorney -Since all rights in the property, including constructive possession was handed over by the Assessee to purchaser the transaction has rightly been treated as sale or transfer u/s 2(47) of the Act by lower authorities, giving rise to capital gains. [ S. 2(47 )(v), 2 (47) (vi ) ]

Allowing Revenue’s appeal, the High Court observed that the relevant clauses of power of attorney suggested that the Assessee has handed over all the rights in the property including constructive possession of property; hence impugned transaction is to be treated as sale / transfer for the purposes of Section 2(47) of the Act giving rise to capital gains.  Appeal of revenue is allowed .   Followed ,  Seshasayee Steels P.
