State sports minister Madan Mitra told PTI today that he had got in touch with Tendulkar who readily accepted the request and wrote in a mail that he was looking forward to the occasion.
"It will be a great occasion and we plan to felicitate in a befitting way for his 100th international centuries milestone," Mitra said.
"I'm looking forward to the occasion. I will be honoured to be felicitated at the iconic Eden Gardens by the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee)," Mitra quoted Sachin as stating in an e-mail.
Mitra today met CAB chief Jagmohan Dalmiya to chalk out the nitty-gritties.
Mamata had earlier taken time off her busy schedule to be the chief guest in India's win over the West Indies in November last year and was seen sharing a great camaraderie with the batting maestro.
The state chief minister had earlier suggested Tendulkar's name for the highest civilian award -- Bharat Ratna -- after he notched the 100th century milestone against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup.
