A capital gain occurs when an investor sells shares for a higher price than what they originally paid for those shares. On the other hand, in the unlisted market, a short term capital gain is the profit made from the sale or transfer of shares that occurs within a period of two years. The purchase of an unlisted share followed by its sale after a period of two years results in what is known as a long-term capital gain.
The capital gains for listed and unlisted shares are different. For unlisted shares if your holding period is less than two years, a short-term capital gain is applied. For listed shares, short-term capital gains are taxable at a rate of 15% if you sell within a year.
