If you are a Male, then you deduct Rs.1,10,000 from that Long Term capital gains and pay tax for the remaining income @20% tax.

Please note that the long term capi. gains from the sale of property is subject to indexation. By indexation, your gains will still reduce depending on how many years back you have purchased it.

How to Calculate L.T.C.Gains (Indexed)

50,00,000 is the selling amount of your house (2007-2008)
33,65,000 is your purchase cost (FY: 2000-2001)
—————
16,35,000 is your LTCGain directly. W/o indexation.
========

Now to calculate and find out indexed cost for Rs.33,65,000
Index for FY:2007-08= 551
Index for FY:2000-01= 406

3365000 x 551 / 406 = 45,66,786 is your indexed cost

50,00,000-45,66,786= 4,33,214 is the indexed gain.

Note= Your direct gain Rs.16,35,000 became only Rs.4,33,214. Now you have to pay tax on 433214 @20% and not on Rs.16,35,000. If you do not have any other income again you can deduct Rs.1,10,000 from 4,33,214 and pay tax on 3,23,214 only @20%.

You calculate as per sample calculation given above replacing the purchase cost, purchase F.Y and index for purchase FY.

Findout your inflation index for your purchase FY from the below list.

Normally No capital gain tax is payable on long term capital gain.
Indexation will have to be referred to ascertain the tax quantum payable if the purchase of house property now sold is of a recent date.
