Ministry seeks more details from AITA on payment row

"AITA says it has not received all the bills from the players but hopefully they`ll find out a way."

The men`s team had threatened to pull out of the Games if their dues were not cleared. However, they confirmed their participation after being assured that the matter would be resolved.

Meanwhile, AITA issued a statement claiming that all the issues have been resolved.

"All payment issues regarding elite players have been resolved and with minimum documentation and the ministry has agreed to process the papers at the earliest so that elite players can receive their dues under the CWG preparations within two-three weeks," a statement by Mukherjea said.

Bhatnagar said if AITA submits all details in time, money can be released in another 15 days.

The ministry official said final entitlement of each player can be known only after they have all the documents with them.

He said the government will pay economy class air-fare as per the Balmer Lawrie rates.
