The Board of Control for Cricket in India(BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly recently purchased a new mansion, which is estimated to be about an eye-popping price of ₹40 crore in central Kolkata. As per a report in Indian Express, the area of the plot is 23.6-kottah and it is two-storey building on Lower Rawdon Street. The report also cited sources close to the development, who stated that the existing building will be demolished and a new one will be laid. The former India skipper currently lives with his family at his ancestral residence, which is located on Biren Roy Road in Behala. He spent his childhood at this locality, before emerging as one of India’s finest captains.
The house has over a dozen rooms and a sprawling lawn. Despite being located in an extremely busy area, the property is located at the dead-end of the street. It has been also noted that it is surrounded by greenery and provides enough privacy for the former Indian captain
