ITR-2A made its debut in the fiscal year 2014-15 (Assessment Year 2015-16), tailored specifically for individuals and Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) with salary income and ownership of more than one house property. However, those with capital gains were ineligible to utilize this form. Regrettably, this form bid adieu starting from the fiscal year 2016-17 (Assessment Year 2017-18).

  • Salary Income
  • Income from House Property (Single or multiple house properties)
