The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that 12 of its member associations have kept the funds received by the board in a term deposit and would not use the money, unless they received orders from the court.
BCCI's General Manager Ratnakar Shetty filed an affidavit before the Supreme Court, stating that the board had received letters from 12 members associations. The member states include Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Mumbai, Punjab, Saurashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.
"The BCCI has received from 12 member associations letters stating that the funds received by them as due from BCCI between September 26, 2016 and October 1, 2016 have been kept by the respective associations in term deposit and that no part of the said amount will be utilised by them until further orders of the Supreme Court," the board said in its affidavit in a PTI report.
The Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee had previously asked the state associations to not utilise the funds transferred to them till the next order in the case, "BCCI shall forthwith cease and desist from making any disbursement of funds for any purpose whatsoever to any state association until and unless the state association concerned adopts a resolution undertaking to implement recommendations of the Committee as accepted by this Court in its judgement," the court was quoted as saying.
