Long term capital gains and income tax computation:

Purchase Year = 1994-95
Purchase Cost = 35000
Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 259

Sale Year = 2010-11
Selling price = 1500000
CII for sale year = 711

Indexed Purchase price = 35000 x (711/259) = 96081
Long term capital gain = 1500000 - 96081 = 1403919
Income tax on capital gain = 1403919 x 20% = 280783.8
