As you sold a plot, section 54F and 54EC can be used to save income tax. But in both these sections, whole sale consideration of plot needs to be invested to save tax fully.

You have already invested 50L in capital gain bonds under section 54EC to save tax.

Now you will have to pay 20% income tax on following amount = Long term gains - ( Long term gains *( 50 lacs/total sale consideration))

e.g. lets say if total sale consideration of plot was 1 crore, then 20% income tax will be payable on 75 - (75 * 50/100) = 37.5 lacs.

You can keep amount invested in capital gain account for max 3 years.
