Singhania Juhu property dispute: Vijaypat, Lakshmipat case set for final hearing in HC
The property was valued at Rs 89 crore in 2009.
In 2010, leading industrialist and former sheriff of Mumbai Vijaypat Singhania and other family members had challenged a 2009 HC order that dismissed an arbitration petition filed by Singhania and his family, seeking to divide and partition the properties of the family firm, JK Bankers. The HC order also had directed that the Juhu property be given to Kolkata-based Lakshmipat Singhania’s family.
Vijaypat Singhania had a dispute with his two brothers from Kanpur and Kolkata, who also have an equal share (one-third each) in properties in Mumbai and Kanpur, together valued at Rs 130 crore. Earlier, the Rs 41-crore property in Kanpur was distributed between the Mumbai and Kanpur groups.
The Singhania family, which owns the JK Organisation, was formed by Lala Kamlapatji and his father Lala Juggilalji in the 1920s by setting up the first cotton mill in northern India, JK Cotton Spinning Mill, and thereon diversified into jute, iron and steel, cotton, hosiery and sugar. After him, Kamlapatji's three sons, Padampat, Kailashpat and Lakshmipat diversified the business further.
Vijaypat, son of Kailashpat Singhania, along with Gautam Singhania, runs the business of Raymond, while Lakshmipat Singhania's family based in Kolkata runs JK Paper and JK Tyres among others. Padampat Singhania’s family is based out of Kanpur.
