NEW DELHI: Sebi on Tuesday said it will auction 15 properties of seven companies, including Sunheaven Agro India and RaviKiran Realty India, along with that of promoters and directors on August 21 to recover money illegally collected from investors.

The other firms whose properties will be auctioned are — Infocare Infra, Bharat Krishi Samridhi Industries Ltd, GSHP Realtech Ltd, Just-Reliable Projects India Ltd, and Newland Agro Industries Ltd.

The properties will be auctioned at a reserve price of Rs 13 crore, according to a public notice issued by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi).

These assets include land parcels and a residential building located in West Bengal.

Of the 15 properties, four relate to Bharat Krishi Samriddhi Industries, three each of Just-Reliable Projects India and Newland Agro Industries, two related to Sunheaven and one each of RaviKiran Realty India, Infocare Infra and GSHP Realtech.

Inviting bids for the sale of properties in the recovery proceedings against the companies and their promoters and directors, Sebi said the auction will be conducted online on August 21 from 11 am to 1pm.
