What is DLC rate. Under SARFAESI, property can'be sold below declared Reserve Price.

Dear Arvind, 

Under Sarfaesi selling of property is governed by many mandatory provisions. 

No satisfactory answer can be provided without complete details.

when property was kept with bank in 2009, the valuation was over 10 lakhs, it had single story construction at that time, bank was looking to recover 7.5 lakhs from that property and it was auctioned for 4.5 lakhs approx.

from 2010 to 2014 for sure valuation had increased per sq feet, even otherwise, bank had to recover more amount that it was sold (auctioned) for. can not get any relation any where?

If you are aggrieved party, you can sue the bank for undervaluing the property, and can contest the sale receipt issued in this regard and get it cancelled. Have it in mind if you allege some thing you have to prove the same.
