As per section 54F, in order to save income tax fully arising on long term gains from asset other than residential house property, you can invest whole sale consideration amount (80 lacs here) into a residential house property. This can be done in time period of one year before sale and two years after sale.

If you buy a residential house property within one year before sale of non-residential property, tax benefit can be taken.

But there are some following conditions which have to be followed in order to take benefit:

  1. You should not be owning more than one residential house(flat/house/apartment) at the time of buying new property.
  2. If total residential houses owned by you is two (including new property), you should not buy another one within next three years of purchase. Or in next three years, total owned residential houses should not be more than two.
  3. New property should not be sold before next three years.
