    Dear Mr. Gaurav,

    Can you please look at my issue and tell me what is my tax amount.

    Land gifted by Dad in the year 2000 worth Rs. 3,00,000/-
    constructed house in 2013 (availing Bank Loan - Rs. 19,60,000/-) Cost of construction Rs. 25,00,000/-
    Sold House in 2014 for Rs. 48,00,000/-
    Puchased new plot in 2014( fur future house construction) for Rs. 28,80,000/ Regn exp - 2,00,000/- Brokerage - Rs. 1,00,000/-
    Cleared home loan of Rs. 18,40,000/-

    Am I eligible for Tax on capital gain.
    Is it compulsory to construct house in 3 years.

    If Capital gain has to be deposited what is the amount

    Indexed Cost of Acquisition = 3,00,000 * 1024/426 = 7,21,126
    Indexed Cost of Improvement = 25,00,000 * 1024/939 = 27,26,304
    Total Indexed Cost = 34,47,430
    Sale Price = 48,00,000
    Capital Gains = 13,52,570

    As these capital gains have been reinvested, you can claim capital gains exemption.

    However, as you have not reinvested in a house but reinvested in a plot - you would be required to do construction on this plot and build a house. Even a small 1 room build on a plot would be considered as a house.

    And as you have already purchased a plot worth more than the capital gains arising - no amount is required to be deposited in the capital gains account.
