New Delhi: The BCCI on Saturday refuted allegations that it violated India's foreign exchange regulations while conducting the 2009 IPL in South Africa, insisting that all the payments were "bona fide and legitimate".

Reacting to a media report which stated that the BCCI had issued notice by the Enforcement Directorate for contravening FEMA by remitting Rs 283 crore to Cricket South Africa and paying IMG Rs 88.48 crore for services in the conduct of the IPL, the Board stated the "violation of Rs 1600 crores mentioned in the report is misleading".

"The BCCI wishes to clarify that these Show Cause Notices were issued in July 2011 and October 2011 and that the BCCI has given detailed replies refuting the charges," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel said in a statement.
