A total of ₹30 crores has been paid by Damani as stamp duty for the property, a report says. Damani is an investor and entrepreneur, known for heading Avenue Supermarts Ltd which owns retail giant DMart. Forbes’ list of rich Indians of 2020 puts Damani in fourth place with a total net worth of $15.4 billion. 

The real estate market was severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. However, the market picked up pace in October 2020 thanks in part to the stamp duty reductions announced by the state government. 

On the flip side, low and middle-income households have found themselves in a tough situation during the pandemic owing to salary cuts or lack of employment.
