Need some help with bonus stripping. https://cleartax.in/s/bonus-stripping says that
if a person:
- acquires units within 3 months prior to the record date
- on which bonus units are subsequently announced,
- and the original units are sold within 9 months from the record date
the shareholder will not be allowed to book the loss on such sale transaction.
What if 1 is false and 3 is true. Basically I bought the units more than 3 months in advance but sold them within 9 months of the record date, I believe I will be allowed to book the loss. Sounds fair?
