Mani refuses bullet proof car and PSL allowance


LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani has taken practical measures to cut down board’s excessive expenditures. According to media reports, Mani has refused to take bulletproof car and allowance of Rs.500, 000 as head of Pakistan Super League (PSL). The bulletproof car was worth Rs30 million and tender for it was already issued by the board. Despite insistence from board members, Mani opted against spending such a hefty amount on his personal welfare. Mani also decided to rescind special monthly allowance handed out to head of Pakistan Super League – something which was approved during the tenure of former PCB chairman Najam Sethi. The PCB has also issued complete details of chairman’s expenses and benefits from 2014 till September 30, 2018 as part of its transparency policy.
