CCI President Premal Udani told PTI that an additional Rs 50 lakh will be raised with donations from its members.

"The remaining Rs 50 lakh will be used for community purposes. Even if there is no work, we are going to pay every staff member and every worker (of ours)," said Udani.

"We have also several ex-staffers and we would rather donate in that area. We also have support staff who is not on our rolls and support our endeavour, so we want to do something for them. And also we want to work with a couple of hospitals in our area by donating masks or PPE suits or other essential medicines," he added.

CCI, which has hosted Tests and ODIs at its Brabourne Stadium, is an associate member of the BCCI.

Maharastra is one of the worst affected states in India with Coronavirus positive cases breaching the 3000 mark.
