Read on the application

The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has settled the long overdue electricity bill. HCA has settled electricity dues after 9 years. During IPL 2024, HCA faced trouble due to electricity bills. Indeed, before the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, the electricity department switched off the lights at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium. At 8 pm in the stadium in Hyderabad, the power went out when both the teams were practicing.

However, the HCA spoke to the Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company Limited (TSSPDCL) and restored the power supply and the match went ahead as scheduled. Hyderabad team defeated Chennai by 6 wickets. According to a report, HCA Chief A. Jaganmohan Rao spent around Rs. 1.64 crore paid the outstanding electricity bill, which was pending since 2015. The association paid Rs 15 lakh during the IPL match. On Tuesday, HCA handed over a check of Rs 1,48,94,521 to TSSPDCL CMD Musharraf Ali Farooqui.

The HCA chief said that we paid around Rs 15 lakh as the first installment during the IPL. He said that we thought of paying the balance in four to five installments but considering the reputation of HCA, we paid the entire bill at once. Today we have handed over a check of Rs 1,48,94,521 to the CMD of TSSPDCL. Rao also requested Mr. Farooqui to take action against the officials who cut the electricity during cricketers’ practice in the IPL.
