Computing capital gain taxes cannot seem tedious or time-consuming when you file your return on ClearTax. Because all you need to do is upload your capital gains statement from your broker’s platform. All your equity and mutual fund transactions will be captured and segregated automatically as long-term capital gains, short-term capital gains, business income, or speculative income within minutes. Here’s how you can fill the capital gain details in your ITR if you have an account with Motilal Oswal.


Step 1: Log in to the ClearTax account.

Step 2: Choose a plan and click on the ‘Start Filing’ button.

Linking PAN

Step 3: Enter your ‘PAN’ and ‘Date of Birth’ to link your PAN. Then, choose the number on which you want to receive the OTP – ‘Aadhaar registered mobile number’ or ‘IT Department registered mobile number’.

Step 4: Enter the OTP and click ‘Verify OTP’.

Pre-fill personal and salary information

Step 5: Complete another OTP verification to have your personal and salary information pre-filled. 

Note: You may skip the pre-fill option and manually enter the details.

Step 6: A preview of your all personal details will appear on the screen. Ensure they are correct.

Step 7: To add, delete, or modify any information, you can go to the ‘Personal Info’ tab and make the changes.

Capturing capital gains transactions

Step 8: To capture capital gain information in ITR, go to the ‘Income Sources’ tab and select the capital gains section. Now, click on ‘Click here if you sold any asset’. 

Step 9: On this page, you will see an option to download the ‘ClearTax Excel template’. After downloading it, key in the required details in the template using Motilal Oswal’s P&L report. You may download the P&L report from Motilal Oswal’s platform (refer to FAQs for a step-by-step download guide). 

Step 10: Once you have filled up the template, click on ‘Upload File’.

Step 11: Select the ‘ClearTax Template’. Now click ‘Choose File’ to upload the file and click ‘Proceed’. 

Step 12: You will now see a summary of your short-term and long-term capital gains and losses. 

Any speculative transactions (e.g., intra-day trading) included in the report will be captured automatically in the ‘Business Income’ section under the heading ‘Speculative Income’.

Step 13: Scroll down to see the details of each transaction. All the transactions will be grouped into long-term and short-term capital gains automatically. You can modify or delete them using the ‘Edit’ or ‘Delete’ option. 

This way, your capital gains tax can be computed on ClearTax in minutes if you have a Demat or a trading account with Motilal Oswal.
