Yes, even if you do non-delivery based transactions, it will be treated as normal sale and purchases. If you are doing this transaction on securities you already have in your portfolio then the long/short term capital gains will be calculated on FIFO basis, i.e. respective purchase date and price of your earlier transaction.
The regulatory requirement is on the turnover i.e. total sale/purchase and not on the net value of transaction, so the 40 Lacs limit will apply.
