cbdt order is a delayed one. There is no need for discussion. It is very clear that bcci is operating only for profit and fame. Not even the youngsters are encouraged properly. The government should bring in bcci and make it responsible for promotion of sports from school level.
Re: BCCI not a charitable organisation, says IT department

BCCI is neither a charitable institution nor helping in the grass root level for finding talented palyer so IT Dept must penalize heavy penalty starting from Year 2000 onwards.
A correct decision, long over due. the was never a sense of Charity in the present BCCI. All involved with BCCI and its acvtivities were getting fatter and fatter at the cost of those watching cricket. the IT department has to be congratulated.
Can BCCI team by LG on Jan 14, 2010 02:02 PM | Hide replies
be no#1 team in true sense?
My answer is NO. No team can dream of being the best without a good bowling attack-if not the best. Indian team do not have right now.
Does that mean we do not have quality bowlers?
No, We had but unfortunately greedy BCCI has made them ineffective by arranging matches on falt pitches of India, which do not encourage fast bowlers and allow them to develop or hone their skills further.
THE FACT IS GREEDY BCCI IS KILLING CRICKET IN INDIA.
KAPIL-LED ICL WAS A MUCH BATTER ORGANIZATION. which was truly meant for young and upcoming cricketers of our country.
When we have white-collar thieves running an organisation what can we expect? Income from multiple dodgy sources with a touch of legitimacy. I cannot wait to see the pirates of BCCI hit hard, and badly. As someone pointed out earlier, how come the Income Tax Department has not figured out that BCCI is a commercial institution - since, in effect, BCCI has been operating since 1947! Is the IT Department going to calculate the unpaid taxes from that period? Where is the starting point? It seems that IT folks are clueless too!!! Great stuff.

The income tax department, to my knowledge, can recover amount for the past five years only. May be when the BCCI was formed, it fell into the category of charitable organization, which is no more the case, hence, IT Dept is right in penalizing the BCCI.
Atleast they should contribute to improve the condition of other sports in India. A contribution of say 1 core per year to Indian hocket team will def help. Just imagine 68 rupees per day is given to the indian hockey players.
