      • Scientific research asset can either be sold without being used for the purpose of business  as such. Sale of scientific research asset as such shall give rise to capital gain which can be either short-tem capital gain or long-term capital gain.

      • Sale of Scientific Research Asset  after it is put to use for  the purpose of business shall reduce the depreciation for subsequent years. Capital gain shall arise depending upon the block of asset. As per section 50 Capital Gain can arise only if  on the last day of the PY.

      • WDV is Zero.
