As per Section 54F the following rules apply
1. You can sell your capital asset and utilize the capital gain within one year before or two years after the date of such transfer or within a period of three years constructed , one residential house property.
Where the amount of capital gain is upto rs. 2 crores, the assesse may at his option purchase or construct two residential houses in India .
However, this option can once be exercised in lifetime.Sec 54(1)
