Stamp duty and registration charges can be added to cost of the property for computing long term gains.

CII (Cost inflation index) for FY 2012-13 has not been declared yet to exact long term gains cannot be computed right now. However if we assume CII for 2012-13 as 850, long term gain comes around 6.55 lakh. Income tax @ 20% would be around 1.31 lakh.

To save income tax on this gain, you can either invest into a residential hosue property or into capital gain bonds.

To save tax long term gains cannot be invested into residential plot, commercial plot or into construction of house on a land which is not owned by you. However, You can buy residential plot and construct house on it to avail tax benefit.
