First, I assume that 50% share in plot has been transferred to you already.

Long term gains will come out around 6.32 lacs (see calculation below) and 20% income tax will be payable on that. Your share will half of that, as you own 50%.

Purchase Year = 1981-82
Purchase Cost = 15000
Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 100

Sale Year = 2011-12
Selling price = 750000
CII for sale year = 785

Indexed Purchase price = 15000 x (785/100) = 117750
Long term capital gain = 750000 - 117750 = 632250
Income tax on capital gain = 632250 x 20% = 126450
