Capital gains in land sale....

I wanted to know about the capital gains. Suppose a land cost 1 Crore and i buy from a promoter, and i need 80 lakhs loan. The bank says it will consider the value as 50 lakhs + 50 Lakhs, meaning for stamp paper buying we consider the land value as 50 lakhs(which is well above the guideline value), so stamp paper for this 50 lakhs alone, and the rest 50 lkhs will be treated as land development cost and will write a separate agrrement with the promoter. so in this case i will save the stamp paper for the seond 50 lakhs part.

The bank says this option is only because i am buying from a promoter, who has spent cost on laying road on the layout etc.

While selling the land i want to know that can i show that i purchased it for 1 Crore or will it be considered that i paid only 50 Lakhs(as in stamp paper) and the capital gains will be more in this senario, if they consider that i paid 1 crore then obiously the capital gain tax will be less. which senario the tax authorites will consider is my question

The bank says that for the second 50 lakhs, the builder will sign an agreement in 20 rupees stamp paper saying that he received 50 lakhs from me as land development cost. So i can show that i spent a total 1 Crore, is that correct?

One more thing, this option i am getting only in Icici bnk and not in LIC(lic says to register for 1 crore). is icici bank fine to bank with.

Purchase cost for capital gains computation would include value as per registration documents plus any amount spent on construction, stamp duty and any brokerage paid.

In case registration value is less than government notified circle rate, then govt circle rate would be considered.

I don't think it can be added to purchase cost for capital gain computation. Please consult a experienced CA/tax professional in this matter.
