Tax benifit for long term capital gain tax when sold a flat

Sir, I had purchased a flat in 2003 costing 8 lakhs and that was sold in Nov'11 at 16 lakhs after repaying the home loan. Before that in May'11 I had purchased another flat costing 23 lakhs taking another home loan. Will it attract long term capital gain tax and how much? Please suggest.

As you already bought another flat with cost more than long term gains earned from old flat sale, there won't be any income tax payable on gains u/s 54.
