With this, Kumar, a businessman, has become the first person in Bodh Gaya to buy land on the moon. He said that he always wanted to go to the moon but since this was not possible he decided to buy land there.
Kumar also said that the amount he paid was not too much, but the process was difficult.
“In the news, we saw many big people like Shah Rukh Khan, recently deceased actor Sushant Singh Rajput, and others who bought land on the moon, after which I started collecting information about it. I came to know about the online sale and purchase of land on the moon by a US society ‘Luna Society International’,” Kumar told news agency ANI.
He further said, “Then I contacted the society through Google and applied for one acre of land in October of 2019. I had given around Rs. 48,000 at that time … money was converted from Indian rupees to dollars. After a lot of online paperwork, I got a message on July 4, 2020, that my deed had been completed,”
“If I get a chance, I would love to go to the moon,” he added.
Prior to him, Saharanpur resident Pooja Gupta had gifted 1-acre land on the moon to her father, Vivek Gupta on Father’s Day.
Notably, Sushant Singh Rajput had bought a piece of lunar land on the far side of the moon which is called the Mare Muscoviense or the ‘Sea of Muscovy.’ The late actor had bought the property from the International Lunar Lands Registry.
Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan was gifted the piece of the moon by a fan.
