    1. The Cost Inflation Index for 2014 has not yet been announced by the Govt and therefore no-one can compute the exact Capital Gains in this case. However, it is expected to be around 10.30 Lakhs (approx). Exact would ascertained only once the Cost Inflation Index for 2014 is announced.

    2. Long Term Capital Gains are taxable @ 20% irrespective of your Income Tax Slab Rate (which currently is 30% in your case)

    3. It is always better to avail Capital Gains exemption by investing in specified instruments as compared to paying tax on the same.

    4. Capital Gains Bonds are required to be purchased within 6 months from the date of Sale. You can keep this money in your SB Account

    5. Yes, you can buy another Residential Property in the next 2 years
