Chintels India gives rights to Sobha Group for two land parcels for Rs 121.82 crore near Dwarka Expressway

The transaction is the most recent in a series of important land deals in the NCR. The sale transaction was executed on December 22, 2023, and the company paid stamp duty of Rs 6.07 crore for the 5.78-acre plot and Rs 2.45 crore for the 2.06-acre property piece, according to documents.

Chintels India, a Gurugram-based real estate developer, has transferred ownership of two land parcels valued at Rs 121.82 crore and covering a total area of 7.85 acres to listed real estate developer Sobha Ltd in Gurugram, according to documents accessed by CRE Matrix.

Both developers stated that the land parcels were part of their joint venture project, ‘International City’.

According to the documents, one land piece, totaling 5.788 acres, is in sector 108, and the second plot, measuring 2.06 acres, is in sector 109. Both properties are in Babupur village, close the Dwarka Expressway, which is expected to be operational soon.

According to the records, the 5.7-acre land costs Rs 86.82 crore, while the 2.06-acre plot is worth Rs 35 crore. The total worth of both plots was Rs 121.82 crore.

The conveyance deed was executed on December 22, with Sobha Ltd paying a total stamp duty of Rs 8.53 crore for both plots, according to the documents. The company paid stamp duty of Rs 6.07 crore for the 5.78-acre property and Rs 2.45 crore for the 2.06-acre land parcel.

Chintels India was embroiled in controversy after six floors of Tower D in the Chintels Paradiso housing complex in Sector 109, Gurugram, collapsed in February 2022, killing two ladies. Following the incident, a structural safety audit of the housing complex determined that five of Chintels Paradiso society’s nine buildings were “unsafe to live” in.

According to a representative for Chintels India, the 5.7-acre site is the commercial portion of the leased land known as ‘International City’, and it is entirely allocated to Sobha under our existing JD Agreement. Ownership was transferred to Sobha in December 2023, and we received no consideration because it was always part of Sobha’s allocation. The 2.06 acres are the clubhouse of International City, which was originally assigned to Chintels but has since been transferred to Sobha.”

“These transactions are both old and part of our existing JDA for International City and the conveyance has taken place recently post fulfillment of mutual obligations,” stated a representative for the company.

Similarly, a spokeswoman for Sobha Ltd stated that the transaction is part of an old payment of a continuing partnership account, which culminated in the registration of specific land in ‘International City’.

According to experts, the anticipated opening of the 26.7 km Dwarka Expressway, which connects Dwarka in New Delhi to the Kherki Dhaula toll plaza on NH-48 in Gurugram, has made this area one of the most sought-after micro markets in the National Capital Region, with several new projects emerging in recent years.

The land transaction is the latest in a string of major deals in the NCR. Countrywide Promoters, a subsidiary of developer BPTP Group paid Rs 87.27 crore in November for a 5.24-acre land in Gurugram’s Sector 113, near the Dwarka Expressway.
Last September, Aamor Inox, a stainless steel bar maker, paid Rs 87.5 crore for 12 bighas of farmland and a farmhouse from Mastcraft Properties in Rangpuri, South Delhi.
