    If the housing loan has been taken for a property which has been purchased less than 1 year prior to the property which has been sold, exemption from Capital Gains would be allowed under Section 54

    If the property is older than 3 years, deduction under Section 54 wont be allowed.

    However, you can claim deduction under section 54EC for investment in capital gains bonds. Amount in these bonds have to be invested within 6 months.

    This amount can be invested in NHAI bonds, REC Bond etc

    5 Year deposit in bank wont classify for capital gains exemption.

    It is only available as deduction under Section 80C
