The Board of Cricket Control India (BCCI) has opened the tender process for the television and digital rights of Indian Premier League.
The Board of Cricket Control India (BCCI) has opened the tender process for the television and digital rights of Indian Premier League. The previous 10-year deal with Sony Pictures Network India (SPNI) is set to be expired at the end of 2017 season and the new deal will give rights for next 10 seasons, up to 2027. Currently, the digital rights of the league are with Star India which also posses the overseas media rights except for US and UK.
BCCI will accept bids till October 25. The television rights will be given till 2027 while digital rights will be given till 2022. The Committee of Administrators (COA) will then go through the tenders and suggest changes, if needed, before floating them.
The new bosses at BCCI wan to be patient about the process unlike their predecessors who were in a hurry to sign the deal. “The former BCCI bosses were in terrible hurry to do the IPL deal, which was rightly stopped by the Lodha Committee as the office-bearers weren’t eligible to do so. But the current working style of BCCI is to do everything without rushing. It’s after all the most important process for BCCI,” a source was quoted by TOI.
The previous deal with Sony helped BCCI generate about Rs. 6,700 crore across 10 years but the league has grown immensely in last one decade. It is now the most viewed cricketing league in the world and this will help BCCI in acquiring a bigger deal with the estimated amount to fall between Rs 18,000 to Rs 30,000 crore.
Earlier it was believed that the demoentisation move could have an impact on IPL auction and on media rights deal but that looks unlikely to happen. IPL auctions for 2017 season are set to happen on February 20, 2017 at Bengaluru with England all-rounder Ben Stokes expected to be the biggest attraction.

SURAT: The project to develop a world-class railway station at Surat has been put on fast track. The tender process for the Multi-Modal Transportation Hub (MMTH) project will begin from February 15, railway minister Suresh Prabhu said here on Sunday.
The railway minister said, “Developing a world-class railway station at Surat is the dream of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Things are moving very fast for the MMTH project in Surat. It took me just one hour to sanction the 90-year lease for the railway land for this project.”
The e-tender for the MMTH project inviting applications from interested parties will be issued on February 15. Since all the railway works are done through e-tendering process, everything happens in a transparent way, he said.
The Indian Railways through IRSDC, Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation Limited (GSRTC) and Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) will jointly develop a state-of-the-art MMTH at Surat railway station on design, built finance operate and transfer (DBFOT) basis. The project broadly includes redevelopment of railway station and GSRTC bus terminal, providing east-west road connectivity and development of common facilities. The features of the project include commercial development on encumbrance free project land of approximately 2,50,000 square meter in central part of the city abutting textile and diamond markets, special development control norms with higher FSI, five towers of 61 storeys for commercial development on a concession period of 90 years.
The project will be implemented under a joint venture special purpose vehicle (SPV), which is under formation. The IRSDC on behalf of SPV has invited request for qualification (RFQ) from interested developers and operators to pre-qualify the applicants for further request for proposal (RPF) bidding stage. Around 30 national and international firms have qualified in the RFQ and RPF bidding. These companies will enter the e-tendering process now.
Navsari MP CR Paatil said, “Once the tender process is over, the work orders for the MMTH project will be awarded for the development of a world-class railway station. This is going to be the first-of-its-kind project in the country.”
