Sara Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, and Shatrughan Sinha— three Bollywood actors– might soon have new neighbors. A public notice to sell their properties has been served to the owners of Indus Projects Limited and the Union Bank of India for failing to pay. The prime property going up for auction has a reserve price of Rs 104.11 crore. 

Sara Ali Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, and his family are among the Bollywood celebrities who live in the same neighborhood as the building. 

The notice states that the bank plans to hold an auction for the promoters’ nine-story residential building. Located in Mumbai’s Juhu Vile Parle Development (JVPD), Kapolei Society in Vile Parle West, the building consists of seven 4BHK  apartments and a duplex. 

The nine-story residential property is situated in Nutan Laxmi CHS Ltd. According to the bank notice shared by Kecta, a platform that markets repossessed properties up for auction by banks and financial institutions, the plot is 800 square yards and is located in the Nutan Laxmi Co-operative Housing Society Ltd., North South Road, JVPD Scheme, Vile Parle (West), Mumbai. 

The building is owned by Indus Projects Limited, a public company established in 1997. The notice listed Kishor Mehta, Abhai Mehtax, Mahavir Mehta, Madhur Mehta, and Indus Mechanical Engineering Company Private Limited as bank debtors. 

The entire amount owed is approximately Rs 90.46 crore. According to the notice, the owners owe State Bank of India Rs 18.60 crore plus interest at the applicable rate, costs, dues, and expenses that may accrue from April 23 until the full repayment and settlement of dues. 

They also owe the Union Bank of India approximately Rs 71.85 crore plus interest at the applicable rate, costs, dues, and expenses. 

Under the Securitization and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act (SARFAESI) of 2022, the Union Bank of India is holding an auction for the bungalow. 

According to Section 13(4) of the Act and Rule 8 of the Security Interest (Enforcement) Rules, 2002, the Authorized Officer has taken possession of the immovable secured assets because you did not comply with the notice within the allotted time. 

The notice stated, “The immovable secured assets that the bank’s authorized officer has taken possession of will be sold by holding a public E-auction on June 20, 2024, by inviting bids from the public online on, since the owners have failed to clear the dues of the secured creditor.” 

There is a 25% off the list price on this offer. The entire transaction is cashless, and payment must be made through banking channels within 15 days of the auction date, according to Hecta’s founder and CEO, Sridhar Samudrala. 

These are premium location ready-to-occupy floors that are ready to be owned. We hardly ever have access to such upscale properties, much less at a discount,” he continues. 

Do you want to purchase a home at a bank auction? This is important for you to know. 

Since banks only auction these properties when a loan borrower misses several payments, most of these real estate assets are offered below market value. The lender uses the auction to recoup the principal and interest balance owed for the loan. 

Potential buyers of real estate at a bank auction should verify the property’s details, especially its legal specifications, before bidding. 

Buyers are cautioned that expenses such as maintenance, property taxes, and electricity which are the buyer’s responsibility are not included in the reserve price listed. 

The prospective buyer should also confirm whether the bank that promoted the sale took physical possession of the property after completing the necessary legal processes. 

According to a legal expert, these properties are sold on an “as is where is,” “whatever is there is,” or “no recourse basis,” which means that the buyer must review the inclusions and exclusions and cannot back out of the agreement after the auction ends (unless there are extraordinary legal circumstances). 

According to a legal expert, purchasers of apartments or bungalows up for auction should ascertain whether the properties are subject to any liabilities.
