i am having one tenanted property owned by me.i had owned it from more than 25 years and i have only rent receipt as proof. Recently some builder is developing that property and paid me Rs.10,00,000/- to vacate it and surrender the tenancy. all the money was paid by cheque. also i have incurred short term capital loss on sale of shares amounting to Rs.2,50,000/-. if gain on sale-surrender of tenancy of property taken as long term gain then can i adjust my short term loss on sale of shares against long term gain and secondly at what rate i have to pay tax on my long term gain and on what amount.

yes you can adjust your short term capital loss with long term gain you have to pay tax @ 20 % on balance long term gain after setting off loss long term gain will be calculated as follows
Sale Consideration (in Your Case it is Rs.10lacs) Less Indexed Cost of Acquisition (Whatever it is in your case) the long term capital gain will then be setoff by Rs.250000/- and the balance will be taxed @ 20 %
