BCCI

The BCCI staff will reportedly get their yearly increments this week after it was delayed due to an internal dispute between two set of employees.

“We did not sit over it, I have personally supervised all the letters and the recommendations of the heads of the departments have been approved,” Committee of Administrators member Diana Edulji was quoted as saying by the Mumbai Mirror on Monday.

The issue came up for discussion during a CoA meeting on Monday.

As per the report, due to an ‘internal war’ between employees who handle Indian Premier League (IPL) files and those who look after domestic and international logistics, the process had been stalled for some time.

The bone of contention is over the promotion of one employee [IPL files] who has been recommended for the post of manager. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri had objected against the preferential treatment of those involved in IPL.

In a media interaction on Monday, CoA chief Vinod Rai had announced that the BCCI elections will be conducted in the next 90 days which means they will be held in the last week of November.

”BCCI elections will happen in 90 days and that’s the deadline we have given ourselves. The moment the new body takes over, the COA will leave. We would do exactly what Justice Vikramjit Sen did (handover reins to DDCA’s elected body),” Rai said.

It was also revealed that the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption Unit is keeping a close watch at inter-state player transfers. After the induction of North-East states to mainstream domestic cricket, reports of small-time cricketers trying to buy their way into these new teams have emerged.
