The Tax Treatment of Intraday and F&O is totally different from that of Delivery Based Shares.

Taxation of Intraday and F&O Incomes
(1). Intraday Income: It is considered Speculative Business Income and therefore if there are losses under Intraday Trading, it cannot be merged with ANY other income. However, it can be carried forward for the next 4 Assessment Years.
(2). F&O Income: It is considered as Non-Speculative Business Income. Therefore, it becomes normal business income (like any other business). If there are losses under F&O, that can be set off against any other Income (excluding Salary and Special Rate Incomes). Losses remaining after set-off can be carried forward for the next 8 Assessment years.
