They point out that they earn Rs 25,000 per month from government jobs.  Hockey India's bizarre response to this: players are "too money-minded".

They want 4.5 lakhs each for 4 podium finishes last year. Hockey India says all it can afford as a reward for these performances is Rs 25,000 each. It promises the players 1 crore if the team manages a podium finish in the World Cup.
