Dear, if u had filed ur IT Return for the Prev. FY (2007-2008) on or before 31st of July 2008, u may claim sat off ur losses of ur F&O transactions booked in Jan. 2008.
From ur query, it seems, u have missed the deadline of return filing. I’m afraid, my dear friend, ur Assessing officer may deny to carry over ur prev. years’ losses.
Anyway file ur returns right now & hope ur assessing officer accepts ur reason of delayed filing (if it’s a valid one).
