“Congratulations to BCCI and Karnataka Government for solving this long-standing issue. Special thanks for Amitabh Choudhary for earning extra campaign,” Khanna said in an statement.

“BCCI will eventually own its very first physical land. We wish to have more of our own. The NCA job at Aerospace, Devanahalli in Bengaluru is likely to be completed in couple of decades.

“BCCI plans to ensure it is a world class facility. The building will start once the Board is allocated a additional 25 acres of property,” he added.

The BCCI on Thursday completed the paperwork from the state authorities for the property.

The registration papers were signed with the BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary, who had been followed by General Manager Dr MV Sridhar and Karnataka State Cricket Association President Sanjay Desai.

The agreement, which was worked out from 2013, got stuck after the Karnataka High Court declared it illegal.

The NCA is located in the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
