However, over the span of two years, the smooth functioning between the club officials with that of the investor started deteriorating. With no room for more talks and considerations, talks about Shree Cement parting ways with East Bengal were evident. However, the final step which remained was the investor returning the sporting rights back to the club.

Terms started touring sour among the officials with that of the investors way back last season when Shree Cement was on the verge of parting their ways. However, at the very last moment upon special advice and consideration from the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Shree Cement stayed.

But with the recent season having concluded, Shree Cement had nothing left to do with the club, and thus on Tuesday, April 12, the sporting right have been returned to the club who are in their pursuit of finding their new investor as the team prepares themselves after their back to back disastrous performances in the ISL.
