Save tax on Agricultural land

How many types of agricultural land can be divided, it can be divided into two types. Rural agricultural land and Urban Agricultural land.

We do not have to pay any tax on Rural agricultural land, whereas we have to pay tax on selling urban agricultural land.

Urban Agriculture Land is the land which comes within the limits of Municipality President Cantonment Board and whose population is more than 10,000. We have to pay income tax on the sale of land falling within the limits of Municipality and Cantonment Board.
If we are going to sell any land beyond the limits of Municipality and Cantonment Board but within 2 km, we have to see that if its population is more than 10,000 and if it is less than one lakh then we will call such land as Urban Agriculture Land.
Any land which is within a range of 6 kms from the limits of Municipality and Cantonment Board and its population is more than one lakh and less than 10,00,000 then also have to pay tax on selling. At the same time, if any such land is called within a range of up to 8 kilometers beyond the limits of the Municipality Cantonment Board and its population is more than 10 lakhs, then such land will also have to pay income tax on selling our land.
