Lower tier of the popular East Stand, named after Sunil Gavaskar, would cost the public Rs. 500 for five days while the upper tier Rs. 1,000.
The member clubs can purchase tickets for the north stand at Rs. 1,000 apiece while the public will have to shell out Rs. 2,500.
Exactly how many tickets would be available for the public (outside those allotted for the member clubs and others) could not be known.
The MCA has also formed a small committee headed by Pawar to decide how to felicitate Tendulkar who is to hang up his boots after a glittering career that fetched him 100 international hundreds and over 34,000 runs in international cricket.
