SC accepts Lodha recommendations: 70 years age cap for BCCI officials

Justice Lodha
: The Supreme Court ruling on the Lodha Committee recommendations on the functioning of the Board of Control of Cricket in India. Highlights…

The SC accepts the massive Lodha commission recommendations. Recommendation on having no minister in BCCI and age cap of 70 accepted.

“It accepts recommendations on One state One vote. However, Maharashtra allowed to have 3 associations on rotational basis. SC also accepts Lodha panel’s recommendation to be a member of CAG within BCCI Governing council.”

BCCI opposed the Lodha panel suggestion of one state, one vote policy. It argued that over the years different associations across the state have developed which would be devoid of representation.

The board also opposed the presence of an ombudsman with voting powers. It said that this will violate the ICC rules

SC had repeatedly questioned BCCI’s rationale relating to the allocation of funds to state bodies. SC said that they were arbitrary and politically motivated.

The board also contested the panel recommendations on the advertising policy and asked them to be sent back to the panel for reconsideration.
