Agency New Delhi: The Indian Cricketers’ Association (ICA) was on Sunday granted Rs 2 crore by the BCCI to kick-start its operations. The ICA, India’s first-ever players’ association formed as per recommendations of the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha panel, has been desperately seeking funds ever since its office bearers were elected in October last year. The players’ body had prepared a tentative budget of Rs 15-20 crore and was seeking an initial grant of Rs 5 crore but got Rs 2 crore which can help in getting an office space in Mumbai. “There are some tax issues that need to worked out and that is why ICA has been given Rs 2 crore. If they want more in the near future, we will sanction more,” a BCCI official told PTI.
