You need to compute capital gains with indexation computations.

Fair market value in 1981-82 = X, CII (Cost inflation index) for year 1981-82 = 100
Construction Year = A, Construction cost in year A = 500000, CII for year A = P
Renovation Year = B, Renovation cost in year B = 100000, CII for year B = Q
Sale Year = 2010-11, Selling price = 7500000, CII for sale year = 711

Indexed cost price = X x (711/100) + 500000 x (711/P) + 100000 x (711/Q) = R
Long term capital gain = 7500000 - R = C
Income tax on capital gain = C x 20%
