    I sold an ancestral property in Jan 2016 and invested the entire amount in eligible bond after March 2016. My questions are:
    1) Since i invested after the end of FY, will I be liable to pay tax on the capital gain
    2) How will I calculate capital gain tax amount as for me the purchase price was nil.
    3) How will I show the bank balance if that property was reflecting at zero cost on my balance sheet.

    1. As you have reinvested the amount before filing the income tax return and within the specified time - therefore you are not required to pay any income tax in this case.
    2. The cost at which your ancestors purchased the property would be considered as your Cost of Acquisition
    3. Please re-explain the 3rd question?
