Sachin Tendulkar has paid a fine of Rs 4.35 lakh to the Mumbai civic body for performing ‘vastu puja’ at his new five-storey bungalow without having the occupancy certificate.


“Sachin paid the amount after BMC issued a notice seeking recovery of Rs 4.35 lakh penalty as illegal occupancy charge,” a Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation official said on Thursday.

There was controversy after reports that Tendulkar had moved into his new bungalow last month without obtaining the OC for the house on Perry Cross Road in west Bandra.

The villa was reconstructed on a plot that housed a dilapidated bungalow, which Sachin bought for R 39 crore in 2007.
