LTCG : Pious or Sin Tax ?

A house commands a market price of 5 Crore rupees if the seller agrees to get paid in cash but only 3 Crores if s/he wants to be paid by bank draft. It means saving in LTCG and registration fee in, may be a Crore or so. Honest tax payers would prefer to get paid by bank draft but others (sagacious/wise/practical) would not mind getting paid 5 Cr. Which one should be preferred? The next step is to buy a new house. The builder wants payment in cash and draft in a certain ratio (generally 40:60). Should the honest tax payer miss the opportunity? Should s/he be a loser in both situations? I have wasted all these decades waiting for an honest regime to settle this tax conundrum with little chance now. LTCG Amar Rahe!

Copy of Charge Memo and other documents
The PIO informed that the copy of Charge Memo and other documents connected with the relevant departmental proceedings were provided to the Appellant during the hearing of departmental proceedings, hence not provided in response to the instant RTI Application. The CIC observed that the PIO has erred in denying the information sought citing the matter as sub-judice. The CIC expressed displeasure over the conduct of PIO in citing Section 8(1)(h) of the RTI Act for denying the information sought. The PIO was directed to provide copy of Charge Memo and other documents connected with the relevant departmental proceedings sought in the RTI Application.
There is no provision in the RTI Act, 2005 which allows denial of information on the grounds of the matter being sub-judice. Further, if copies of certain documents are being sought under the RTI Act, they cannot be denied claiming that copies were already provided under some other proceedings.
