Your capital gain will be computed with purchase price 2 lacs in 1989 and sale price of 55 lacs in 2010. Payment to bank for clearing loan cannot be considered here.

Below will be your long term capital gain and tax computation:

Purchase Year = 1989-90
Purchase Cost = 200000
Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 172

Sale Year = 2010-11
Selling price = 5500000
CII for sale year = 711

Indexed Purchase price = 200000 x (711/172) = 826744
Long term capital gain = 5500000 - 826744 = 4673256
Income tax on capital gain = 4673256 x 20% = 934651.2
