What is benami property?

Benami in Hindi means without a name. So, a property which is bought by an individual not under his or her name is benami property. This can include property held in the name of spouse or child for which the amount is paid out of known sources of income.

It can be a joint property with brother, sister or other relatives for which the amount is paid out of known sources of income also falls under benami property. The money transaction involved here is called benami transaction.

Benami is basically done, to evade taxation, people invest their black money in buying benami property. The real owner of these properties are not easy to trace due to fake names and identities. The person on whose name the property is purhcased is called benamdar. The benami transactions include buying assets of any kind — movable, immovable, tangible, intangible, any right or interest, or legal documents.

People were smart enough to reply back Rajdeep

So it is still not clear if the land is actually benami or is being held by Robert Vadra.
