East Bengal, the Kolkata-based football club, is set to incur a Rs 60,000 fine and potential point deductions after allegedly fielding an overage player in the ongoing AIFF U-17 Youth League as per a report from News 9. The All India Football Federation (AIFF) is yet to finalize the player's suspension period.

The controversy arose when it was discovered that the player in question had two names registered in the AIFF’s Central Registration System (CRS), a mandatory online database for players and clubs participating in organized football. The player participated in East Bengal's tournament opener against Mohammedan SC on December 14, which they won 3-2.
