The Maharashtra government netted nearly Rs 82 crore as stamp duty from the five-year media rights deal between the BCCI and broadcast major Star India, a Department of Stamps and Registration official has claimed.

Star India recently won the TV broadcasting and digital rights of the Indian Premier League for Rs 16,347 crore in a five-year deal, defeating Sony which had broadcast the first 10 editions of the IPL.

"After coming to know from print and TV media about the contract, we took up the matter with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), with whom Star India signed the contract," a top official of the Department of Stamps and Registration said.
