Yes, you can claim tax benefits u/s 54F, but there are some conditions for 54F applicability:

  1. You should not be owning more than one residential house property at the time of sale of land.
  2. New residential property should not be sold in next three years of possession.
  3. Possession of new residential property should be received within two years of sale or with one year before sale of plot.
  4. In next three years, total residential house properties owned by you cannot be more than two.
