    that 60% is not even enough to cut 1% of the top level expenses .. start from the top..

    Devanand Wednesday, 06 June 2012 10:24 AM

    Please say how many staff are there at present and how many are going to be reduced... When you say 60%, nobody knows how many will be reduced or how many are there....

    Dear Minister, Please do consider a cut on the number of contracted players also, atleast introduce some qualifying criteria for contracts with the SLC.

    You are making unemployment on the increase. This is against Labour Law and so called representatives in the legislature violating their own legislation because Labour Law does'nt mind whether the employment is contract, causal or regular. Any unjustifiable termination will be inquired into by Labour Tribunal if an application is made. or else pay some compensation for these people.

    what is the basis you are going to reduce the staff. Performances for political biasness..

    Achari Wednesday, 06 June 2012 11:14 AM

    How about canceling the contract with CSN for the 3 year period and call for re bids. Then you could save majority of innocent people who would loase their jobs due to this act.

    The state corporations are over staffs and losing money, why only the cricket board.

    He should take a good look at the administration staff first-so many hangers -on that need pruning!

    Blackeagle Wednesday, 06 June 2012 12:46 PM

    Cut off should be in the administration staff, better have limited cricketers on contract basis istead of reducing.

    ibnuaboo Wednesday, 06 June 2012 12:52 PM
