With exactly a month to go for the high-profile Indian Premier League to get underway, the Home Ministry on Tuesday sent reminders to states holding the Twenty20 matches to give their feedbacks on the revised schedule.

"The Ministry sent a reminder today to the states holding IPL matches to respond to the revised schedule sent on March 7", a Home Ministry spokesman said.

The IPL coincides with the general elections in the country and the organisers of the cash-rich league have been forced to revamp the schedule to avoid matches on polling days in the host cities.

The IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi today held a press conference in Mumbai and claimed that three state governments had already given the organisers their clearance in writing.

"Three state governments (of the eight involved) have already given us their clearance in writing. The other five are expected to give it in a day or so. One state government had asked for a change of date and we are working it out", Modi said at a function where the logo of the second edition of the league was unveiled.
