As you are selling a commercial property, income tax can be saved under section 54F and 54EC.

Under 54F, you will have to invest in a residential property. Under 54EC, you will have to invest into capital gains bonds.

If you buy commercial land/property, no income tax exemption will be available and you will have to pay income tax on long term capital gains.
