The Delhi High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA) and its 25 executive committee members on a plea by another member seeking directions to frame policy for disbursal of complimentary tickets for the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches. The plea filed by N.C Bakshi, a retired Delhi University professor, asked the DDCA to give a true and fair account of disbursal of complimentary tickets for the IPL season 7 matches held in 2014 at the Feroze Shah Kotla Grounds as well as the mechanism followed.

Justice Rajiv Shakdher sought response from the DDCA and its 25 members and also asked the DDCA to file an affidavit indicating how it distributed the complimentary tickets. The plea said for the purpose of hosting IPL matches every year, DDCA enters into an agreement with GMR Sports Pvt. Ltd., the company which owns Delhi Daredevils team, to provide the ground and other facilities. GMR issues certain complimentary tickets to the DDCA worth several crores in addition to Rs.10 lakh for each match, it said.
