Cap gains on sale of under construction property

One of my cleints purchased a under construction property from DLF on 04-09-2009


He got the possession of the property on 06-07-2011. Now he sold the property on 20-04-2013


Is this short term or long term capital gain ?? Would the period during which the property was under construction be considered ??


Please state with reasons
