Seeking removal of certain Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official Lodha Panel Submits Another Report to Supreme Court.
The committee has also recommended that G.K.Pillai, former Union Home Secretary be appointed as the Observer, with a power to appoint Auditor and all necessary secretarial staff, assistance and remuneration as may be determined appropriate by the Committee.
The Lodha Committee, which was appointed by the Supreme Court to clean up cricket administration in India following corruption and match-fixing scandals, had earlier submitted its report advising far-reaching changes in the way the game is run in the country.
The recommendations by the panel sought to define stringent eligibility criteria for BCCI office-bearers and set limits to their tenure. Ministers and bureaucrats currently holding office will not to be allowed to hold BCCI positions, neither would those officials holding office in their state associations or those above 70 years of age.
The Lodha Committee also advised that there should be five elected office-bearers — president, secretary and one vice-president instead of the current five, treasurer and joint-secretary. The panel also proposed that these officials should serve no more than three three-year terms and that there must be a “cooling-off” period between terms to prevent them from holding office for several years at a stretch.
The Lodha panels report had also recommended that the BCCI Working Committee must be replaced with a nine-member apex council which will include representatives from the players’ community, including one woman.
There was also a proposal that a nominee of the Comptroller and Auditor General should be included in the apex council to keep an eye on how the BCCI was utilising its financial resources.
The Supreme Court had accepted all these recommendations and had asked the BCCI to implement them.
