BCCI’s plea of ‘One State, One Vote policy’ and the altered ‘cooling off period policy' has been accepted by the Supreme Court of India.
The Supreme Court has granted permission to the cricket associations of Mumbai, Saurashtra, Vadodara, and Vidarbha.
The associations which weren’t able to constitute a state have also been given the right by the SC of India, such as – Railways, Services, Universities, National Cricket Club(Kolkata) and Cricket Club of India.
While the latest cooling off policy states that the BCCI office bearers will serve two consecutive terms, instead of one. Which means the officials will have to serve for six consecutive years – either with the BCCI, or its member bodies, or a combination of both.
A bench headed by, Chief Justice Deepak Misra, has informed the BCCI to register the latest changes and alternation in the constitution with the Tamil Nadu Registrar of Societies within four weeks. The board members have been given a tenure of 30 days to confirm the same to the Committee of Administrators.
