VADODARA: After having settled two-decade-old property dispute with his estranged cousin brother, royal scion Pratapsinhrao Gaekwad is set to make Vadodara his permanent home. Pratapsinhrao's father Sangramsinh had settled in Mumbai in 1970s and used to operate Baroda Rayon from there. Sangramsinh kept visiting Vadodara on occasions and was always in contact with his family and friends here. While Pratapsinhrao, too, grew up in Mumbai, he has decided to return to his roots.

Sources close to the family said Pratapsinhrao has decided to settle in Vadodara with his wife Pragyashree. He will increase his presence among Barodians. Pratapsinhrao is cousin brother of royal scion Samarjitsinh Gaekwad, who stays in Laxmi Vilas Palace with his wife, two daughters, mother and aunt. Sangramsinh and Samarjitsinh's father late Ranjitsinh were locked in a property battle for 23 years. But after Ranjitsinh passed away, Samarjitsinh and Pratapsinhrao struck a compromise last year and divided the property among the family members.

"Having settled the property dispute, Pratapsinhrao has decided to live in Vadodara. He will be staying here permanently with his wife. Sangramsinh and his wife will be in Mumbai, but they will keep visiting the city frequently," a close Gaekwad family aide said. He added that Pratapsinhrao intends to increase his presence in Vadodara by engaging in developmental activities. Pratapsinhrao was not available for comments.

After signing a compromise deal, Pratapsinhrao had told Times of India that now they have their own home in Vadodara and that he would keep visiting the city more often. "Pratapsinhrao will attend gatherings in the city and increase social presence. His roots were always in Vadodara and it is just a homecoming," the aide added. After the property dispute was settled, Pratapsinhrao's father Sangramsinh got Indumati Palace, Nazarbaug Palace, two bungalows and real estate in Vadodara. He had said earlier that he intends to develop residential apartments in Indumati Palace Compound and Nazarbaug palace property.
