Please see below computation for long term gains:
Purchase Year = 2008-09, Purchase Cost = 910000, Cost Inflation Index (CII) for purchase year = 582
Sale Year = 2011-12, Selling price = 1900000, CII for sale year = 785
Indexed Purchase price = 910000 x (785/582) = 1227405
Long term capital gain = 1900000 - 1227405 = 672595
Income tax on capital gain = 672595 x 20% = 134519

To save this income tax fully either you can buy/construct another residential house property for cost more than gain amount (6.73 lakh) or invest the gains into capital gain bonds.

There is no tax benefit on paying the home loan or buying a agricultural land or a plot.
