He said the association was considering paying the remaining amount in 4-5 instalments. However, keeping in mind the reputation of HCA, the association had to pay the whole amount at once, he said.

During the IPL season, due to the non-payment of the electricity bill, the TSSPDCL officials cut the electricity of the stadium while the players were practising. It tarnished the brand image of Hyderabad and Telangana, Rao told the CMD.

He urged him to take stringent action against the overzealous officials.
