Comment on Now gift stocks and ETFs to your friends and loved ones

The tax implication for the gifted stocks are incorrect completely and against the Income tax rules.

When you gift a tax using zerodha online, the profit /loss report is considering it as profit and showing in the p/l statement as profit. Once shown, income tax will have to be paid which is completely wrong reporting by zerodha.

From this FY 2020-21, every broker has to send the p/l stmt. of each acct. holder to it dept. and would reflect in our form 26as. We will be forced to pay income tax for wrong computation/reporting by zerodha.

This is against income tax rules and also concerned about how/why the same can be allowed by sebi/it dept.

Please treat this as serious and i have raised a ticket – but there is no reply from zerodha since last 10 days.

I am very concerned and so would all.
