move the decimal to one place to the right that should give you a near about range for the max wage 17.5 lakhs
one lakh = one hundred thousand
Just make it to upto 8 lakhs,17 is too much clubs like Air India or RWFC will not be able to pay and they might just choose stay out of I-League.
Team Wage Budget should be 4 crores for 27 players,rest 3 can be paid how much ever the club can afford.
New Additions Which I would like to see :-
1) U-20 League for I-League clubs,2nd Division clubs,Academies,and State League teams which can afford to have its own U-20 Team.League should be structured in region wise and should be played in H/A format with knockout in the end.
In U-20 League teams are allowed to field 3 overage players so that they can test injury returned players instead to have them compete in I-League for a starting berth.
2) U-17 League for I-League Clubs,2nd Division Clubs and entry for other teams is done only if they have a valid U-17 program.Format for the league be same like U-20 League
Price Money for U-20 League should be 25 Lakhs and U-17 League should be 10 Lakhs.
These Youth Leagues should be important addition by AIFF to make sure clubs invest money in developing Youth.
Atleast 3 years from next season all I-League clubs need to have residential program for U-17(14-16) and U-20(17-19).
we definitely should be looking for the option what korea is planning to implement..to reduce the no of clubs to 12 in coming season and removing those clubs which are not fulfilling the criteria as well
and come up with a 15 team 2nd division in next 2 seasons which would be good...
and also i like the example of canberra to check the efficiency of a place as probable football expansion club...
still i would on any day will prefer a franchise format than the traditional promotion/relegation system in our league
