Jaipur: Feb 8, 2013

A division bench of High Court has directed Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) to pay post dated cheques of Rs 20 lakh each for the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches to be held at Jaipur to the state government in advance along with the MOU to be signed with the state government within three days for rent of Sawai Mansingh Stadium.

The order was a consent order passed by a division bench of Justice NK Jain and Justice Meena V Gomber with the concession made by RCA counsel RN Mathur that the IPL is in national interest and the public should not be allowed to be suffered.

“In the greater public interest RCA is ready to pay 20 lakh rupees as the rent for SMS stadium. But it should be seen that RCA needs more than 118 crore rupees for construction of their own stadium and there is no help from the state government,” said Mathur.

The bench also ruled that the state government is free to recover its earlier dues of Rs 1 crore as per the law but the same should not come in holding the cricket matches in Jaipur.

It was observed by the bench that in case need arises, RCA can approach the high court to seek directions for assistance from state government for raising its own cricket stadium at Jaipur or Udaipur as proposed.

The order came on a PIL filed by Vindo Singhal. Disposing the PIL, court directed that a fresh MOU without any stipulation of paying any previous dues should be entered within a period of three days and the same shall be forwarded to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for necessary action.

It was given out in the PIL that the RCA has been allotted with matches for IPL 6, but the stadium should be available with the RCA.

It was alleged that owing to certain differences in the pending arrears of payments to be made by RCA to Sports Council the MOU is not being singned and BCCI has asked RCA to inform as to whether the stadium will be made available by April 3, 2013.
