Digitized player registration process in Mumbai


Mumbai’s cricketers no longer need to fill out long paper forms and submit documents to the association office for player registration. The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) has digitized the process.

MCA currently has more than thousands of players registered under their wing and players have until December to register with MCA for the new registration cards.

“It’s unique in the country. Everything will be paperless and it will save players time getting to the MCA office, submitting their documents and then receiving a card. We had a good discussion and everyone thought online was the way to go, ”MCA Secretary Sanjay Naik told The Indian Express.

In its second registration meeting, attended by MCA President Vijay Patil, Secretary Naik and chaired by Arman Mallik, a Delhi-based software company, a Delhi-based software company presented how MCA can use the online portal for registration .

The protocol dictates that every player participating in an MCA tournament must first register. Many found the registration process too lengthy and too much paperwork involved.

It goes without saying that the new online process will be like applying for a passport. Once a player submits documents, the MCA will review them and send a message to the appropriate club secretary whose team the player wishes to represent. The secretary only needs to click the “Accept” button to approve the MCA request.

Players will be given a slot to come to the MCA office for review with their original documents. Once their documents have been checked, the MCA will give the player the MCA card on site.

Those players who are already registered and also take part in different tournaments have to apply for new cards. “Former players had to come four to five times to complete the registration. That saves time, energy and also saves the players money, ”added Naik.
