She also had investments of over Rs two lakh in bonds, debentures and shares of companies.
The 52-year-old BJP nominee has an investment of Rs 2.12 crore in other financial instruments like national saving scheme, postal savings and LIC.
Maneka's sister-in-law and Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who is contesting from Rae Bareli, had declared assets worth Rs 1.37 crore while her nephew Rahul who will seek re-election from Amethi had Rs 2.25 crore worth of moveable and immovable assets.
