As per the Indian law, a foreign national has to attain special permission from Reserve Bank of India before buying immovable property in the country. Unaware of the law, Adnan bought flats worth INR 2.53 crore.

Appellate Tribunal for the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) gave a verdict in the case as they directed Adnan Sami to pay the fine in three months time.

“The flats were purchased by Indian Rupees, out of monies earned in India on which Income Tax has been paid, as well as monies loaned from India banks. The loans have been duly repaid, for the confiscation of the properties,” the tribunal said in its judgment.

Sami claims he was not aware that Pakistani nationals could not purchase immovable property in India.
