Supreme Court has today ruled that No Minister or Government official would be allowed to become office-bearer of BCCI, the national cricketing body.

It is being looked upon as a major setback to the BCCI.

The Bench has also accepted the Lodha Committee recommendation that there shall be “One State One Vote” representation at the BCCI.

Chief Justice T S Thakur headed the bench and directed that no person can be a office-bearer in State Cricket Association as well as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) simultaneously.
The ruling would directly affect Anurag Thakur, BCCI President because he is also heading the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA).

As regards Maharashtra and Gujarat States, Chief Justice Thakur said that since these States have four and three BCCI affiliated associations respectively, they will now have to appoint one permanent representative by rotation while others will be associate members.

The Bench has also accepted the Lodha Committee Recommendation that the BCCI Board shall have a nominee of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG).

As far as the question of bringing the BCCI within the jurisdiction of Right to Information (RTI) Act, the apex court left it for Parliament to take the call.

The Bench however, refused to interfere with the BCCI on the issue of awarding TV Broadcasting rights and the funding of the State Cricket Associations.

Court gave six months’ time to the BCCI to shift to a new regime and this shall be supervised by Justice Lodha Committee.
