As per Income Tax Act you can purchase one flat by selling one flat. You cannot sell 2 flats and invest in one to have exemption of capital gain tax. For further queries and elaborate answer pl mail complete details at modani005@gmail.com

You may invest in 2 residential  house properties, as new definition u/s 54 requires investment in one  house. If you invest in 1 house you will not fulfil the condition being investment in one house.
