1 The cost of acquisition of your flat is the cost of plot and registration cost. 

2The interest paid on your home loan upto the date of your acquisition is capitalized and allowed to you under the head "income from house property" and not under STCG.

If the interest has not been claimed against property income then you can claim interest on housing loan as cost of improvement.
