According to a report by Financial Express, the 30 per cent tax will not be applicable in the current financial year i.e year ending March 31, 2022. So, if you sell your holdings before March 31, 2022, the income from their sale should not be taxable.

According to Revenue Secretary Tarun Bajaj, “For transactions before April 1, you will show in some head in your ITR and the Assessing Officer will do an assessment for you.” The individuals can place the income from crypto under any head in ITR.

It is up to the AO to do the required assessment. The tax may not be 0 per cent on the income, but it will also not be 30 per cent. This step can be more beneficial to small investors. Also, from July 2022, the 1 per cent TDS rule will also be applicable, the report stated.
