Due to an ongoing internal dispute between two groups of employees, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has stalled the increment of its staff despite earning a whopping INR 25,000 crore during last fiscal year.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, an ‘internal war’ has been going on between employees who handle Indian Premier League (IPL) files and those who look after domestic and international logistics.

The bone of contention is over the promotion of one employee [IPL files] who has been recommended for the post of manager.

“Increments of all employees at Cricket Centre are stalled over promotion of a particular employee in the IPL division. After the last IPL, those in the BCCI in-charge of the tournament recommended that this person be promoted to the post of manager. However, the BCCI CEO, Rahul Johri, objected claiming the person was promoted only a year earlier,” Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying on Monday.

Johri has objected against the preferential treatment of those involved in IPL and even the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has refused to intervene.

“Johri has objected to what is perceived as preferential treatment to those handling the IPL. The COA has refused to interfere but they may have to now to ensure things don’t get out of hand,” the report claimed.
