The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday (July 04) selected Ajit Agarkar as the new chief selector of the Indian senior men’s team. Agarkar has represented the Indian team for a long time. In this way, he can benefit Indian cricket by holding the post of chief selector. Before Agarkar, the post of Chief Selector was lying vacant for almost 5 months. The reason behind this was said to be the chief selector’s salary. However, now the BCCI has tripled the salary of the chief selector.
How much increased salary?
It was said that none of India’s former players had shown interest in the post due to the low salary. However, now BCCI Triples Salary of Chief Selector (BCCI Triples Salary of Chief Selector). Earlier, the chief selector used to get a salary of Rs 1 crore per annum.
The chief selector of the Indian senior men’s cricket team used to get Rs 1 crore a year earlier. However, now it has increased three times. According to media reports, the chief selector will now get a salary of Rs 3 crore per annum. Also, other members of the selection committee were paid an annual salary of Rs 90 lakh, which will also increase. It is said that the salaries of other members have not been increased yet.
The annual salary of Ajit Agarkar will be 3 crores.
