l Transfer of Indian company's share constitutes transfer of a capital asset situate in India and income from such transfer of capital asset even if accrues or is received in India within the meaning of section 5 such income being specifically enumerated under section 9 would be income deemed to accrue or arise in India

l The capital gains accruing or arising to a non-resident on transfer of a capital asset situate in India apart from being taxed in hands of non-resident, can be taxed in hands of agent of non-resident under section 163 read with section 9 because the income accruing to the non-resident falls within the category of deemed income specified in section 9
