Based upon 80,000 construction expense, capital gain will be around 35.7 lacs. Even if there is no construction proof, you should consider it if same was utilized.

Before tax return filing last date (31st July) for year in which gain occurred, if possession of new house is taken, no need to deposit into capital gain account. If not, then it needs to be deposited.

In the mean time, she can keep amount in savings bank account.
