Below is the capital gain and income tax computation:
Purchase Year = 1994-95, Purchase Cost = 7500, Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 259
Sale Year = 2011-12, Selling price = 1000000, CII for sale year = 785
Indexed Purchase price = 7500 x (785/259) = 22732
Long term capital gain = 1000000 - 22732 = 977268
Income tax on capital gain = 977268 x 20% = 195453.6

If you invest whole sale consideration amount into capital gain bonds u/s 54EC, there won't be any income tax payable on gains.

But as your income in this financial year is more than non-taxable range, before any deduction, you should file income tax return.
