As per section 54, tax benefit for long term gains can only be taken against a single residential property and more than one. And new residential house property has to be in the name of same person (either single or jointly owned).

As you sold newly purchased properties already and new duplex is also not in your name, you would have to pay tax on gains @ 20%.
