Are you sure, your query is correct when you say, "sold the flat in July, 1984", i.e., with a profit of 30.5 Lakhs by spending merely 1.5 Lakhs within one month of the same year of purchase?

If so, I wonder, if your uncle has not yet settled the Capital Gain Tax or not purchased another property. So, please recheck about the correctness of your query.

Sir, Thanks for correcting me. The flat has been sold in July 2010 and not July 1984. A mistake committed by me.

Calculation is made o the basis of capital index cost. (CIC)

According to CIC 1984-85-125
2010-2011-711

Index costing:-150000*711/125=853200

Capital gain=3200000-853200=2346800
Rate of capital gain tax 20%=469360/-

If assessee invests Rs.2346800 in other asset then there is no tax liability on assessee.
This amount is not needed to retain in any shape.

Tax is paid on the same year, when the return is field.

If your uncle wants to save capital gain tax, he has to do the following:
1. Purchase another residential property by spending Rs. 32.00 Lacs within 2 years or construct a Residential Unit within 3 years.
2. If he cannot invest the aforesaid sum within July/October, 2011, then he has to invest the same in any nationalised bank under capital gain savings/fixed deposit account.
3. If he do not want to invest in residential property, then also he can save tax by investing the gain of Rs. 23.47 lacs in specified bond within six months from the date of sale.

Thanks, Mr Preet and Soumitro Basu. Kindly also clarify if Rs. 23.47 Lakhs is now deposited in specified Bonds, whether the tzx of Rs. 469360.00 is still to be paid, or it can be avoided.
