DDCA withdraws plea seeking occupancy certificate from SDMC for holding WT20 matches at Kotla

It also observed that a conditional final occupancy certificate cannot be granted, adding that it does not want anyone to say later that something untoward happened there due to lack of compliances or due to some minor deviation.

DDCA withdraws plea seeking occupancy certificate from SDMC for holding WT20 matches at Kotla

New Delhi: The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) today withdrew a plea seeking occupancy certificate from South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) to hold T20 WC matches at Feroz Shah Kotla ground.

PTI reported that SDMC told HC it wanted DDCA to deposit Rs 50 lakh as security and comply with norms within 20 days.

Earlier on Monday, a bench of justices S Muralidhar and Vibhu Bakhru today asked South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) to come back with instructions on whether it can grant the certificate based on an undertaking by DDCA that it will ensure full compliance in three weeks.

The bench was of the view that "ultimately it is the safety of the stadium which will host the match, that is paramount".

It also observed that a conditional final occupancy certificate cannot be granted, adding that it does not want anyone to say later that something untoward happened there due to lack of compliances or due to some minor deviation.

The court made the observations after advocate Sangram Patnaik, appearing for Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA), told the bench that February 8 was the last date for informing BCCI whether the stadium can be fixed as a venue as tickets would be sold globally from February 9.
