The price assessment was made by the evaluation group he formed. All of these presents, with a total worth of about Rs 100 million, were kept by Imran Khan in September 2018 by paying 20% (Rs 20 million) of their assessed value, according to The News International.

Those who want to keep the present can do so by paying a percentage of the value, which was 20% at the time Imran Khan kept the above-mentioned gifts.
