    My Query is-
    1) what will be capital gain?
    2) If I invest 50,00,000/-under capital gains bonds then how much capital gains tax should I pay?
    What are the option to reduce tax burden to minimum?

    The Cost Inflation Index for FY 2015-16 has not yet been announced.

    Last year's figure was 1024 and this year the figure is expected to be 1035. Assuming it to be 1035, the Capital Gains would be computed as under:-

    Property I
    Indexed Cost of Acquisition = 2,65,000 * 1035/281 = 9,65,000
    Sale Price = 39,00,000
    Capital Gains = 29,35,000

    Property II
    Indexed Cost of Acquisition = 4,65,000 * 1035/281 = 17,12,722
    Sale Price = 51,00,000
    Capital Gains = 33,87,278

    The total Capital Gains is 63,22,278. If you invest Rs. 50 Lakhs in capital gains bonds - the next taxable capital gains would be 13,22,278

    Apart from investing in capital gains bonds - you can also invest in a residential house property and claim exemption under Section 54F. However, this exemption is allowed only if you dont own more than 1 Residential House Property
