SC approves draft constitution of BCCI with some modifications

Supreme Court The Supreme Court today approved draft constitution of BCCI with some modifications. The modifications are based on the suggestions given by the supreme court appointed amicus curiae Gopal Subramanium on the draft constitution of the BCCI. 

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra modified the 'one state-one vote' policy and granted full membership to Saurashtra, Vadodara, Mumbai and Vidarbha cricket associations. 

One of the recommendations of the Lodha panel was that there would be only one cricket association in one state. This had led to the loss of permanent membership and voting rights to historic bodies like Mumbai Cricket Association, Cricket Club of India, Vidarbha Cricket Association, Baroda Cricket Association and Saurashtra Cricket Association, located in Maharashtra and Gujarat.

The bench, also comprising justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, restored the permanent membership to Railways, Services and Universities. The apex court also directed the state cricket associations to adopt the BCCI constitution within 30 days and warned that non-compliance will invite actions in accordance with its earlier order. 

Dealing with the issue of the cooling-off period and disqualification of the BCCI office-bearers, the bench said a person would have to go through a cooling-off period after holding a post in the board for two consecutive terms.
