In a massive reprieve for Mohun Bagan, the All India Football Federation revoked the two-year ban on the club while imposing a meagre fine of Rs 2 crore for abandoning its I-League derby against East Bengal mid-way, last December.
The decision was taken during the AIFF's executive committee meeting, chaired by president Praful Patel.
The I-League's core committee had earlier banned Mohun Bagan from the I-League for two years for breaching of rules.
"The executive committee, after due deliberation, Mohun Bagan will be continue to play in the current season, but they will lose all the 12 points they have earned so far in the league. They will start with zero points and will have to pay Rs 2 crore as compensation," Patel said here.
"There is a panel provision under which the quantum of damage can be decided by the executive committee," he added.
He said the decision was arrived at keeping in mind the larger interest of the sport, the players fans and all stakeholders involved.
