The Income-Tax Department has attached a 'benami' plot worth Rs 400 crore in Noida belonging to BSP supremo Mayawati's brother and his wife, an official order said.

 

The provisional order for the attachment of the seven-acre plot, "beneficially owned" by Anand Kumar and his wife Vichiter Lata, was issued on July 16 by the Delhi-based Benami Prohibition Unit (BPU) of the department.

 

The attached asset, considered a 'benami' property measures 28,328.07 square meters or about seven acres whose book value is Rs 400 crore, the order said.

 

The department started initiating action under the new Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Amendment Act, 2016 from November 1, 2016 after the Modi government enforced the dormant-lying law from that year.

 

According to the law, a violator of the Benami Act can face rigorous imprisonment up to seven years besides being liable to pay fine up to 25 per cent of fair market value of the 'benami' property.

 

Recently, Mayawati has appointed Kumar as the national vice president of the Bahujan Samaj Party.
