BCCI AGM on December 1, Proposal to Rework Powers of CEO, Officials

Written by Vishwas Gupta

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the BCCI will take place on December 1 from 11 am at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai and there are six major points in the agenda as far as the amendments to be proposed in the constitution of the board are concerned.

In the amendments proposal, the office bearers will look at six points in the constitution which will need to be reworked as the board officials believe that there are certain regulations which are not in line with the suggestions of the Lodha Panel as approved by the Supreme Court.

The first pointer relates to the need to approach the SC for approval for every change made, which the officials feel is not feasible.

“The final constitution of the BCCI contains a requirement that any amendment to the constitution needs to be approved by the Supreme Court. This was not part of Justice Lodha Committee reforms. This did not form part of the principal judgement of the Supreme Court dated July 18, 2016. By this provision, the members’ autonomy and the right to seek legitimate changes would every time have to be approved by the Supreme Court. This is not practical,” it reads.
