As per the BCCI website document, CAB is among the beneficiaries to receive payments made above Rs 25 lakh during the month of May. An amount of 16,20,00,000 was credited to CAB as per the article on BCCI website for "Adhoc Advance for amount due to association as per Inv No CAB/01/20-21."
"We had provided the utilisation certificate to the board. And following which, an amount of 15 crore plus GST was given to us as an adhoc amount against the pending dues. From that amount we ensured that all the scorers, umpires as well as match observers were paid and all their dues were cleared," CAB President Avishek Dalmiya told IANS.
Meanwhile, the CAB under its Stay Safe Initiative decided earlier this month to auto-renew the annual, associate and life membership of members for the 2020-21 season keeping in mind the extraordinary circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the beginning of the month, the Kolkata police also requested CAB to make use of the under galleries as makeshift quarantine facility for police personnel on an urgent basis.
Reputed doctors attached with major hospitals in the city who are members of the medical committee of CAB also wrote to Avishek offering help in the quarantine facility.
