Former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s name appears on a list of buyers who have yet to claim their flats in the Amrapali Group’s contentious housing projects in Noida and Greater Noida. According to a list published in the Times of India newspaper, Dhoni is one of 1800 ‘benami’ flat owners in Noida projects who have yet to claim their properties. There are a total of 9538 flats in the Amrapali projects that have yet to be claimed by their owners.
Dhoni’s name was ranked 14th on the list for the Sapphire Phase 1 project, and there are two penthouses (C-P5 and P6) at the Amrapali project in Noida Sector 45. The name, however, is spelled Mahendra Singh Doni in the Supreme Court’s list, which was published in newspapers.
On Thursday, the list was published in the Times of India, and Dhoni’s name (apparently misspelt as Doni) appeared on the second page. It requests that those named on the list update their information on the Office of Receiver’s website and make any outstanding payments if they want to take possession of the flats after they are completed.
The authorities are releasing the names of all flat owners who have not yet claimed their flats, and they have been given 15 days to do so. Those who do not comply will have their allotments cancelled and their flats resold in the market by the Court receiver.
The remainder of the list will be published the following week. Last month, the receiver submitted a list of 9,538 flats in Amrapali Group projects that had not yet been claimed by their buyers.
Dhoni had been the Amrapali Group’s brand ambassador for seven years and had been targeted on social media for the company’s unfinished projects. This is yet another controversy in which Dhoni has become embroiled, just a few days after being named Team India’s coach for the T20 World Cup in 2021.

The BCCI apex council received a complaint on Thursday (September 9) against former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s appointment as the Indian team’s mentor for the T20 World Cup, citing the Lodha Committee reforms’ conflict of interest clause.
Former Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjeev Gupta, who has previously filed a series of Conflict of Interest complaints against players and administrators, has sent a letter to the apex council members claiming that Dhoni’s appointment violates the Conflict of Interest clause, which states that one person cannot hold two positions at the same time. Dhoni is also the captain of the Chennai Super Kings IPL team.
