Tasked by markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) to sell land parcels of Sahara, HDFC Realty will e-auction on July 4 five properties owned by the beleaguered group at a reserve price of Rs 722 crore.

HDFC Realty has been asked to auction a total of 31 land parcels at Rs 2,400 crore, while SBI Cap has been tasked to auction another 30 land properties with an estimated market value of about Rs 4,100 crore.

The Sebi roped in HDFC Realty and SBI Cap after being asked by the Supreme Court to initiate the process of selling Sahara properties whose titles have been deposited with it by the group.

Following a go-ahead from the Court, the two entities have put in place a mechanism to auction these properties.

In a public notice issued on Thursday, HDFC Realty said it will e-auction as many as five land parcels on July 4 between 11 am and 12 pm. These properties will fetch around Rs 722 crore at reserve price.

These properties are located in Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh. The assets being sold include agricultural non-agri land.

Interested bidder can inspect these land parcels on June 10.

As per the court directions, these properties cannot be sold at less than 90% of circle rates.

After spending two years in jail, Sahara chief Subrata Roy is currently out on parole. He was sent to jail on the orders of the Supreme Court in a long running dispute with Sebi.
