New Delhi. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has been fined by the Calcutta High Court. Along with Ganguly, the Bengal government and its housing corporation have also been fined. The matter is of wrongful allotment of land. Due to which the High Court imposed a fine of 10 thousand rupees on the former Indian captain, while the Bengal Government and Housing Corporation have been fined 50-50 thousand rupees.

The issue of allotment of 2 acres of land
In fact, Ganguly’s educational institution was given land by the Bengal government in the New Town area of Kolkata against the rules. In the PIL, questions were raised on the 2 acres of land allotted to the BCCI President and Ganguly Education and Welfare Society for the school.
The bench said that the country always stands for the players. Especially those who represent the country at the international level. It is true that Sourav Ganguly has brought laurels to the country in cricket, but when it comes to laws and rules, everything is equal in the constitution. No one can claim to be above him. In 2016, a PIL was filed challenging the allotment of this land.
