BCCI tells SC not to interfere in broadcast right bidding

Cricket Web Exclusive Board of Control for Cricket in India, subramanian swamy Indian Premier League, Amitabh Ch

Abhishek Manu Singhvi, counsel for the chief executive officer of the Board, said the tender process had been approved by Vinod Rai, Chairman of the apex court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).

The Supreme Court on Friday issued a notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over a plea seeking e-auction of media rights for Indian Premier League (IPL) matches. He mentioned in the PIL that the BCCI should have gone for e-auction since an audacious amount of Rs 30,000 crore is on the line.

The auction process was delayed a year ago on the apex court's directive to comply with the Lodha panel reforms first. He said the court should not interfere with the process.

The case will be heard next on 24 August.

The BJP leader termed the ongoing bidding as "sham auction" and requested the court to direct the board to go for e-auction for selling media rights worth of Rs 25,000-30,000 crore.

The auctions for the broadcasting rights are set to be held on August 17, with the rights lasting for the duration of five seasons. The worldwide media rights, too, are valid for five seasons.

There is a requirement of non-discriminatory and transparent method, (in line) with the best global practices, to be adopted for distribution of valuable media rights so as to ensure maximum revenue in the larger national interest.

"No standard norms and objective criteria or procedures have been established for the distribution of the valuable rights associated with the game of cricket and selection or engagement of the rights holders".
