Firstly the amount of capital gain will be taxable in the A.Y. 2011-12 as tax is levied in the year of transfer of capital asset.

The amount of Rs. 5 lakh which assessee had received on behalf of his family members is not taxable in hands of assessee, therefore the amount of capital gain which will be taxable in the hands of assessee is Rs. 14 lakh i.e. (19lakh -5 lakh).

And further, as stated in the query that half land is of agriculture nature, therefore capital gain tax will be levied on 7 lakh i.e. 50% amount of capital gain.
