BCCI has doubled the pension of former first-class and Test cricketers with those earning Rs 15,000 going up to Rs 30,000 and those with Rs 37,500 being upgraded to Rs 60,000 bracket. Those who received Rs 50,000 from now on will get Rs 70,000.

“The announcement by the BCCI yesterday has been very well received by our members, many of whom have benefitted with this move in these days of rising prices and falling interest income, all of which has become a world-wide phenomenon,” ICA stated in a media release.
I am more than grateful that the BCCI has accepted and put into action this long-standing request from us. I would like to especially thank Mr Jay Shah, the BCCI Honorary Secretary for his efforts,” said ICA president Ashok Malhotra.
Meanwhile, besides the former cricketers, umpires will also benefit from this scheme which will be enacted from this month itself.
Honorary Treasurer, BCCI, Arun Singh Dhumal, said: “Whatever the BCCI is today, it is because of the contribution of its former cricketers and umpires. We are pleased to announce the increase in the monthly pensions which will be a gesture for the well-being of our former cricketers.
The move was announced by BCCI secretary Jay Shah in a series of tweets, while President Sourav Ganguly wrote “It is important that the financial well-being of our former cricketers is taken care of. The players remain the lifeline of the game, it is our duty to be by their side once their playing days are over. The umpires hve been heroes and the BCCI truly values their contribution.”
