Apart from Star and Chettinad, it is learnt that Cycle Brand Aggarbatti has also bought bid document from the BCCI. "There are 21 corporates and large business houses which have bought bid documents. Now buying bid documents doesn't necessarily mean participating in the bid," a top BCCI official told PTI.
