The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the adoption followed by an upgradation of a new digital interface for seamless transfer and dissemination of funds to cricketers and State associations.
Players and State associations will now have minimum paperwork to handle. Also, the time taken to process invoices will see a drastic reduction.
Under the supervision of secretary Jay Shah, the Board has initiated new features in the Database Management System wherein the invoices for players across age groups (men and women) will be submitted monthly instead of after completion of the tournament. By virtue of this, players can avail of payments based on the number of matches played in a month.
“Earlier, a delay in submitting the invoice would lead to a delay in payment, so now, it will be kind of blanket online payment and the process will be easy,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah told Sportstar. “No player has to wait for payment. Paying the players in time is the priority.”
According to the earlier BCCI system, players had to raise invoices to their respective State units, who had to forward it to the BCCI for approval. Only then, the payment would be released, mostly after the season. That would lead to a lot of logistical issues.
But now, the players themselves will now be able to raise invoices as per their convenience at any location through the online portal.
According to the new system, no manual intervention is ensured which will help in mitigating errors, specifically for payments including those for the Ranji Trophy wherein there are differential match fee rates based on number of matches played by individual players.
The BCCI, State associations and players can track the details of their invoices and payment status online.
An effort to ensure transparency at all levels, the MIS or auditable documents can now also be generated through the e-portal.
According to the BCCI slab, senior players who have featured in 20 matches are entitled to receive Rs 40,000 per day, while reserves receive Rs 20,000 a day.
Those who feature in the final eleven and have played in 21 to 40 matches will now be paid Rs 50,000 (Rs 25,000 for reserves) while players who have played more than 40 matches will be entitled to receive Rs 60,000. Reserves will be entitled to receive Rs 30,000..
