Kolkata, Sep 28 (TIWN) A division bench of Calcutta High Court comprising acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Arijit Banerjee on Monday imposed a token cost of Rs 10,000 on Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly and imposed a cost of Rs 50,000 each on the West Bengal government and a state-owned corporation - WBHIDCO for irregular allotment of plot to the former Indian skipper to set up a school in New Town area close to Kolkata.

The bench, comprising Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Arijit Banerjee, said the amount should be deposited with the West Bengal State Legal Services Authority within four weeks.  "Though the plot of land has been returned by the allottees, for the conduct of the state in generating litigation by arbitrary exercise of power that runs totally contrary to the law laid down by the Supreme Court, we impose a cost of Rs 50,000 each on the state and WBHIDCO," the court said.  The court said the state government and WBHIDCO could recover the amount from the employees responsible for the allotment decision.
