DDCA licence fee for Kotla just 1 pc of market rate?

 

DDCA pays a nominal licence fee of Rs 24.64 lakh per year for the Feroz Shah Kotla ground, which is just about 1.4 per cent of the presumptive fee of 16.74 crore per year if the value of the land is taken at commercial rates, the Central Information Commission has pointed out.

 

Refraining from passing an order declaring the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) a public authority under the RTI Act, the CIC agreed, however, that the cricketing body was receiving concessions on licence fee for the land which is of "material/of considerable value" and without which it would struggle to exist.

Neither Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI) nor its franchises like Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) can claim to be above the law and deny accountability. When the government gives state land at concession to these bodies, they are public bodies. The rate of the land should be revived and its commercial value assessed from time to time and proportionate lease should be collected from the allottees.
