IPL fate hinges on discussion between Centre and states
New Delhi (PTI): A decision on whether the Indian Premier League can go ahead with a revised schedule would be taken after the central government discusses the matter with the host states and the Election Commission.

The IPL organisers have conveyed to the Home Ministry that they do not require any central forces for the security. "Ministry of Home Affairs passed on the new schedule to the states on Wednesday itself and is waiting for their response as to whether they need para-military forces for matches or not," Special Secretary (Internal Security) Raman Srivastava told reporters here.

The new schedule starts from April 10 and ends on May 24, he said. Raman revealed that after receiving the response from the state governments, the Home Ministry will go to the Election Commission informing them about the security arrangements.

The states where the IPL matches are scheduled to be held are Delhi, West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. He said the BCCI had written a letter to Home Minister P Chidambaram saying that they "do not require central para-military forces and can do with state police and they have given a new schedule on Wednesday avoiding election dates."
