After waiting for almost one-and-half years, former Delhi cricketers will get their pension cheques.
On Tuesday, the executive committee of the Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) decided to release the pension of 64 players and four umpires, who are listed with the DDCA.
The decision ends the wait since February 2010, when the proposal was brought forth. Earlier this year, the executive committee agreed that pension would be payable from January 1, but the decision was not implemented.
Other important decisions taken during the two-hour long meeting, which was headed by DDCA president, Arun Jaitley, included the formation of a 10-member ad-hoc committee to carry out the working of the sports working committee, after its functioning was restrained by a Delhi court on May 12.
The ad-hoc committee will be headed by CK Khanna.
Executive committee general secretary, Sneh Bansal, said, "The executive committee will also start the procedure for the appointment of a judge who will be responsible for transparency during the next elections of the sports working committee."
