New Delhi: The under-fire DDCA officials yesterday deposited an amount of Rs 83 lakh as land assessment fee of Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium to the Land & Development Office (L&DO) as 520 seats are set to be removed under the new regulations set by Municipal Corporation of Delhi.
"We have got the acknowledgement receipt for the draft that we have submitted. Expected by Wednesday, we will get the NOC from the L&DO. The MCD engineers today inspected the stadium and told us about all the requirements. The removal of 520 seats, which was a deviation from stadium plan, has already started. The work has started for areas allocated for toilets which were earlier changed into food courts," a senior DDCA official told PTI today.
The DDCA official also said that top officials from GMR group, the owner of Delhi Daredevils, will be meeting Justice Mukul Mudgal tomorrow to discuss smooth conduct of IPL matches.
When a GMR official was contacted in this regard, he refused to divulge any details about the said meeting. "Please do not read too much into this meeting. We have met Justice Mudgal earlier also and this is a courtesy meeting," the official of the local IPL franchise said.
