I have the following short term stock gain in fy 2017-18.

Should I use ITR2 or ITR3 or ITR4?

Stock purchase =28 lakh
Short term gain = 2.73 lakh.
No of purchases/sales = about 30-35

Period of holding per stock: 15 days - 4 months.

All trades = delivery stocks NSE.

Peak balance DMAT: 10 lakh approx (purchase value)

Thanks Kshiteesh.

I’ve seen that before. I’m just wondering if ITR2 would be fine for my level of activity in stocks?
