Capital assets -- Equity shares in a company; Unit of an equity oriented fund; and Unit of a Business Trust -- are mentioned in section 111A and section 112A of the Act:



The derivatives (Future & options) are not treated as capital asset and the income arising from the transfer of the derivatives is treated as business income and liable for normal rate of tax. However, in the case of Foreign Institutional Investors (FPI), the derivatives are treated as capital assets and the gains arising from the transfer of the same is treated as capital gains and subjected to a special rate of tax as per the provisions of section 115AD of the Act.
