One of the frequently asked questions is related to multiple owners. If there are two owners, for example, a husband and wife who are both NRIs, do they have to apply for two separate applications?

After filing the applications, the authorities will allot them to two different income tax officers, and each officer will handle a separate process.

However, if there are two buyers, you don’t need to apply for four different certificates. Even if there are two buyers, you need to apply for two applications, and you can get two certificates.

  1. Dear Sir,
    I and my wife jointly own a property in India bought 11 years back. I am an NRI while my wife is not. We intend selling this property for 70 Lakhs and are buying another property for 93 Lakhs jointly in India immediately after selling this. How will be the TDS deducted? Is TDS deduction essential even if we are immediately re-investing?

    • hello,
