Update: 5th December 2018
Sachin Tendulkar’s income, Net Worth are of great interest to all of us.
This is because he has inspired all of us with his stellar role as a cricketer and for doing social service.
Usually, getting access to the income and net worth details of celebrities like Sachin Tendular is difficult.
However, now an official order of the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT) is available which reveals confidential information about the income and net worth of Sachin Tendulkar.
According to the order of the Tribunal dated 10th August 2018, Tendulkar filed a return of income in which he declared an income of Rs. 61,23,14,400 (Rs. 61 crore).
This income was declared for the assessment year 2012-13.
The order also discloses information about Sachin Tendulkar’s net worth.
He owns two properties in Pune, i.e., flat at Saphire Park and flat in Treasure park costing Rs.60,60,000/- and Rs.82,80,750/- respectively.
The property situated in Treasure Park was let out for 9 months at Rs.15,000 per month.
He also owns a palatial flat in Bandra, Mumbai, where he resides with his family.
The Income-tax Officer computed Tendulkar’s income by estimating the rental income at 6% of the value of both the fiats aggregating to Rs.1,43,40,750/- (Rs.82,80,750 + 60,60,000) as deemed rental income.
Sachin Tendulkar’s current income in 2018 will be in excess of Rs. 100 crore.
We can confidently make this estimate because the official order of the ITAT discloses that Sachin Tendulkar’s income for AY 2012-13 is Rs. 61 crore.
It is obvious that with the passage of time, there will also be an increase in the income, especially given the popularity of the person.
Sachin Tendulkar’s net worth is in excess of Rs. 500 crore.
This estimate can be made because Tendulkar has been earning high income after paying taxes of about Rs. 70 crore for the past several years. This is invested in a prudent manner in real estate property, stocks of companies and securities issued by the Government and RBI.
These investments would have also multiplied over the years and contributed to the increase in the net worth and income of Sachin Tendulkar.
Everything in life is hard-earned. Just like our independence. Among countless other things, there would have been no ‘Team India’ if not for the sacrifice of our brave freedom fighters. Let us not take that freedom for granted. #HappyIndependenceDay ?????? pic.twitter.com/RYrveJ9P7y
