In order to save income tax on this long term gains, section 54F can be applicable.

In order to save tax fully, each one of you will have to invest in a new residential property for at-least 37.5 lacs (1.50/4 is your share of sale consideration). New property can be on joint names as well, but cost of one's share must be more than 37.5 lacs.

Section 54F has some condition for applicability. These should be followed:

  1. Possession of new flat must be taken within two years from sale of plot.
  2. Person should not be owning more than one residential house(flat/house/apartment) at the time of buying new flat.
  3. If total residential houses owned by person is two (including new flat), he should not buy another one within next three years of purchase. Or in next three years, total owned residential houses should not be more than two.
  4. New flat should not be sold before next three years.
