Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar moved into his dream four-storeyed bungalow in Mumbai's suburb Bandra in September, but not without hurdles. He has reportedly paid a fine of Rs 4.35 lakh to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for moving into the house without getting Occupancy Certificate.

The BMC issued a notice to the cricketer seeking a fine of Rs 4.35 lakh as illegal occupancy charge. Sources said that the Mumbai civic authorities had issued Occupancy Certificate after the cricketer produced all the necessary documents and paid the fine.

Sachin performed the house warming ceremony of his dream house last month before receiving OC from BMC. As per the law, a person can't occupy a house before getting OC from the civic body. So, Sachin was slapped with a notice under Section 350 (A) of the BMC Act.
