The Committee of Administrators (COA) have completed their work on the draft of BCCI’s new constitution, incorporating the Lodha panel recommendations, and will be submitting it to the Supreme Court on September 11, PTI reported.
The primary recommendations by Lodha panel pertaining to good governance consists of one state one vote, age cap of 70 years, cooling off period after every three years in office and no minister or bureaucrat become an office bearer in BCCI.
The COA along with CEO Rahul Johri met in the capital on Friday where they met representatives of North East and also discussed the new constitution.
“We have completed our work and we will definitely submit the draft constitution in Supreme Court much before the next scheduled hearing on September 19. There will not be a sixth status report,” COA chief Vinod Rai told reporters after the meeting.
However, a senior BCCI official on conditions of anonymity said that the report will be submitted to the apex court by Monday.
When Rai was asked about the status of units like Kolkata’s National Cricket Club (NCC) and Mumbai’s Cricket Club of India (CCI), which are supposed to lose full membership plus voting rights if one adheres to Lodha Reforms, Rai said: “That will be upto the Supreme Court to decide on how much cricket they play.
