After indexation benefit, there will be around 18 lacs of long term gains. 20% income tax would be payable on that.

If you want to save income tax, you can invest into a residential house property (u/s 54F) or into capital gain bonds (u/s 54EC). To save tax fully, whole sale amount has to be invested back.

There won't be any exemption available if amount is invested into residential plot, unless a house is built on it within three years of sale.

Yogesh, you are right, as you have claimed depreciation, any gain will be short term gains as per section 50. No exemption will be provided in this case.
