InformationHow does BCCI carry out its payments?

The richest cricket board in the world, Board of Control for Cricket in India, has been under the scanner of the Supreme Court after a serious betting scandal hit the Indian Premier League in 2013.

The finances of the board are questioned every now and then by various people.

Let us have a look at how BCCI manages its payments.

The Committee of Administrators has given instructions to the BCCI that all the payments should jointly be approved by the joint-secretary and the CEO of the board.

However, if one of them fails to approve the same or rejects the proposal within three days, the matter is taken to the CoA, which has the final say in the matter.
