    BCCI declares pension for Sachin

    PTI[ TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 2004 04:49:48 PM ]


    NEW DELHI: This week will spell a bonanza for India's past and present Test cricketers, and this includes all those who have officiated as umpires in Test matches as well.

    In all 174 Test players and umpires will receive a monthly pension of Rs 5,000 for life, starting from April.

    Overall the Board would be spending in excess of Rs one crore each year towards the welfare of former and present Test cricketers as well as umpires.

    The cheques to these beneficiaries will be delivered on April 30.

    This is a special gesture by the Board to mark its platinium jubilee celebrations which fall in 2004.

    In one stroke, not even those who are impoverished but also the likes of megastars such as Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly would be receiving Rs 5,000 a month from the Board once they hang their boots.



    According to a Board spokesman, this pension scheme is a gesture from the BCCI on the year of its platinum jubilee.
