The dispute was taken to the court almost a decade ago after Prajita Developers Pvt Ltd did not proceed with the agreed plan and left the plot empty, without any construction, reported PTI. Dilip Kumar"s property in Bandra"s Pali Hills is sprawled across 2412 square yards, said PTI.

In August, the Supreme Court asked Dilip Kumar to hand over the amount within four weeks and also to intimate the firm, which then was supposed to let the veteran actor acquire possession of the property within a week. "Upon the receipt of such intimation, Prajita shall withdraw all the security personnel deployed by it and hand over possession of the property in question within a period of seven days from the date of the receipt of the above-mentioned intimation to the appellant in the presence of Commissioner of Police, Mumbai or any other senior police officer subordinate to the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai to be nominated by the Commissioner of Police," the apex court had said, stated PTI.
