SC accepts Lodha panel recommendations
Monday 18 July 2016

 

The Supreme Court accepted major recommendation of R M Lodha panel on administration in Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The SC also ruled that states like Maharashtra and Gujarat, who have more than one cricket association, would have voting rights on rotational basis.
The Supreme Court also accepted recommendations to have CAG nominee in BCCI and that office bearers in BCCI should not be beyond the age of 70 years.
The Lodha panel had earlier recommended that a person should not hold more than one position in the BCCI to avoid conflict of interest, and the SC have accepted that.
One of the major highlights of the recommendations was that Ministers and IAS officers were disqualified from handling key positions in BCCI. However, the apex court left it to the Parliament to decide whether BCCI functioning could be brought under RTI.
