Long term gains will be computed minimum as per circle rate prices. If Govt valuation of plot is Rs 2.51 crore then gains will be computed according to it.

If capital gains has to be computed according to 97 lakh, you can see below calculation:

Purchase Year = 1981-82
Purchase Cost = 400000
Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 100

Sale Year = 2011-12
Selling price = 9700000
CII for sale year = 785

Indexed Purchase price = 400000 x (785/100) = 3140000
Long term capital gain = 9700000 - 3140000 = 6560000
Income tax on capital gain = 6560000 x 20% = 1312000
