If 3 people brought land together at rs.880500 in 2015-16
And gave for development in 18-19
Sale taken place in 21-22 for rs.1920000 what will be capital gains for 1 person who sold his ?

My view..
Cost of acq will be 880500/3=293500
Indexed cost = 293500*317/254=366297
Sale= 1920000
Sale - indexed cost= 1553702
Long term gains = 1553702 x 20%=Rs..310740

Some people say that there will be cost when you gave for land development(rule statement in deed) where builder calculates his marketvalue and you need to take the proportionate sft for ur land..and it will form part of your cost..is this a valid form to do?can anyone explain this?do we need to take that cost also?

By whom are the flats sold. you or builder. it's not very clear from your query, if builder has purchased the land from you three and then he developed it and sold to someone. if that is the case then the capital gains would arise in equal proportions by equally allocating sale value and cost amongst all 3.
if you had given the land for development and flats are sold by 3 ppl then capital gains would arise in hands of all three equally by allocating the cost and sale value equally.

As it is evident that you gave your land for development and then sold, thus the cost for development paid by you 3 will become cost of improvement and thus it will also get indexed, if it is given in cash than cost of improvement will be actual amount paid and if it is given in kind like flat or some portion of land then the FMV of that on date to transfer of development rights will be the cost of improvement and it will get indexed. This is one of my view, looking forward for other experts opinion.
