Mumbai Cricket Association owes ₹ 21.34 to the Mumbai Police on account of providing security for the Indian Premier League and other major matches.

The payment is pending the past seven seasons of the IPL and other matches hostes by the MCA, an RTI query has revealed.

Mumbai Police, in an RTI question by activist Anil Galgali, has replied that the MCA is yet to pay ₹Rs 21.34 crore for the security offered during the matches of high importance in the business capital of India. The amount also includes an interest of ₹5.61 crore, but doesn’t include the security charges for the just concluded IPL 2019.

“Assistant Commissioner of Police (coordination) Dilip Thorat has replied under the RTI Act that the outstanding amount includes fees for providing security for One Day Internationals, T-20 World Cup, Tests and Women’s World Cup matches, all of which are pending and the amount keeps piling up,” Galgali was reported as saying.

“It is obligatory on the part of the MCA to immediately clear the dues of the police department for the prompt help the police provides by way of security and smooth conduct of the IPL. Even the police officers concerned must ensure that the bills are cleared within a reasonable period after the IPL is over,” Galgali further added.
