Salman Khan 'overpays' for flat, lands in trouble

I've seen some flats which have a parking lot on each floors. Most brokers say the buyers will convert it to the living space in the future. Salman's case will cause immense grief to these buyers as BMC will slap big fines on these flats.

Bollywood actor Salman Khan has once again landed in trouble for paying a higher amount than the actual market value of a house in ‘The Address’ building at Bandstand in Bandra (West). Khan has bought a 1,079-square metre carpet area on the 11th floor of the 28-storey building. The building is being developed by Samudra Developers Pvt Ltd of the Dheeraj Group. Besides paying Rs1. 64 crore towards stamp duty, Khan has paid almost Rs20 crore for the said area. “It comes to almost Rs1.80 lakh per square feet, against the market rate of Rs25,000 to Rs30,000. The amount is six times more when compared to the existing market rate. It is quite high. It must be a case of money laundering,” said YP Singh, an activist who played a major role in exposing the controversial Adarsh Housing scam.
