Minerva train but miss prematch meet AIFF calls it blatant disregard

first_imgBhubaneswar: Barely hours before the tournament’s scheduled kick-off, the Super Cup was shrouded in uncertainty with Minerva Punjab FC giving the customary pre-match conference and meeting a miss, prompting the All India Football Federation to label it as “blatant disregard”. A cloud of uncertainty hung over the fate of the tournament after eight I-League clubs Tuesday pulled out citing unfair treatment by the All India Football Federation (AIFF). “While representatives from three clubs — FC Pune City, Kerala Blasters FC and Indian Arrows — were present on both occasions, Minerva Punjab FC did not attend either despite being present in Bhubaneswar,” the AIFF said in a statement. “This is extremely disappointing, and a blatant disregard for the federation,” the apex body added. As per the schedule, former I-League champions Minerva Punjab are slated to play Indian Super League franchise FC Pune City on Friday, the opening day of the qualifiers. In case Minerva Punjab stick to their decision to withdraw, the AIFF said the “rules and regulations of the tournament will be invoked”, and the matter forwarded to the relevant authority for further action and decision. The Super Cup is scheduled to be held in Bhubaneswar, with the qualifiers starting from March 15. The final is slated for April 13. Minerva, along with seven other teams, had Tuesday pointed out that the I-League clubs are being neglected in all aspects by the country’s football federation. The clubs said it had written a letter to the AIFF in February regarding multiple concerns such as the future of the league but they are “yet to hear back” from the federation. Minerva also highlighted how the AIFF has “not provided any financial assistance to the participating teams” despite having a title sponsor for the event. With no AFC competitions also on offer, the club felt the competition lacked any incentive for the teams.last_img read more

Housing market affordable in all 7 big cities except Mumbai

first_imgNew Delhi: Stable prices and lower interest rates on home loans have made housing market affordable in all major cities of the country except Mumbai, according to property consultant JLL India.Hyderabad was the most affordable housing market in 2018, followed by Kolkata and Pune, the consultant said in its annual Home Purchase Affordability Index (JLL HPAI) launched on Wednesday. The index analyses affordability across key seven cities (Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad and Kolkata) for 2011 to 2018 after factoring in home loan interest rates, average household income and price of a 1,000 sq ft apartment. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe index signifies whether a household earning an average annual income (at an overall city level) is eligible for a housing loan to buy a 1,000 sq ft residential property in the city at the prevailing market price and home loan interest rate. “It is interesting to note that only Hyderabad out of the seven cities covered as a part of our study was affordable in 2013 whereas the situation flipped positively by 2018. In 2018, all the cities except Mumbai crossed the affordability threshold as per JLL HPAI,” the consultant said. JLL India’s CEO & Country Head Ramesh Nair said the company aims to share a holistic perspective which could act as a feeder into strategic decision making for developers and policy makers. “Favourable home loan rates backed by stable price have resulted in improved affordability across cities from 2014,” Nair added. JLL India’s Chief Economist and Head of Research Samanthak Das said the affordability levels would continue to improve over the next three years for all seven cities.last_img read more
