Capital gains will have to be computed on the sale deed/registration prices or corresponding circle rates at that time (whichever is higher).

As per sale deed cost, below is computation for income tax:
Purchase Year = 2004-05
Purchase Cost = 1275000
Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 480

Sale Year = 2011-12
Selling price = 3500000
CII for sale year = 785

Indexed Purchase price = 1275000 x (785/480) = 2085156
Long term capital gain = 3500000 - 2085156 = 1414844
Income tax on capital gain = 1414844 x 20% = 282968.8

If you take 2.5 and 7 lacs as purchase and selling price, then income tax will be just around 58000.
