Chandigarh:The Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) was on Thursday slapped with a legal notice which called for restraint while issuing complimentary passes for the upcoming Test match between India and Pakistan to be held in Mohali.

The notice, served by Arvind Thakur on behalf of the Federation of Lawyers Against Corruption, claimed that distribution of complimentary passes came directly under the purview of Prevention of Corruption Act.

The notice was addressed to PCA chief IS Bindra.

"It is requested to you by means of this legal notice that restrain yourself from issuing the complimentary passes and give assurance that no such passes will be issued to any one," the notice said.

"Failing this my client shall be constrained to bring the appropriate legal proceedings upon you," it said seeking a reply within the next 15 days from the receipt of the notice.

The notice also said issuance of such passes would cause a big financial loss to PCA.

"In the previous matches, the complimentary passes had created problems for the genuine ticket holders. They remained out of the stadium throughout the match whereas the pass holders enjoyed the game sitting in front rows without spending even a single penny," said the notice.

When contacted, PCA officials said they had not received the notice so far.
