Lodha Committee to submit report regarding BCCI reforms on Monday

The much-awaited Lodha Committee report, which promises to bring sea changes in the constitution and functioning of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), will submit its report to the Supreme Court on Monday.

The Apex Court had assigned Justice RM Lodha-led committee to make recommendations to the BCCI with view to prevent sporting frauds and conflict of interest in cricket administration. The report has recommended some revolutionary changes. What are those? CNN-IBN cricket editor Sanjeeb Mukherjea tells you in his exclusive report.

Take a look at the recommended reforms –

While the zonal rotation policy to elect BCCI administrators will be abolished, there is also mentioning of age and tenure limit for Board and state association office-bearers.

The report also recommends that the sports administrators can be restricted to have just two terms in their offices. In one of the most important aspects of it, chargesheeted administrators face possibility of being barred from contesting election.

While there will be scrutiny of revenue and income distribution by the Board to state associations, all contracts and appointments will also be scrutinised. There is also a possibility that independent directors can run the Board.

The Indian Premier League, which primarily became a reason for the Lodha Committee report after a betting-fixing scandal dented its reputation, can be segregated from the Board and run independently. BCCI every now and then has denied to come under Right to Information Act, citing it didn’t take money from sports ministry, but if recommendations find their ways, the Board may not only come under RTI Act, it may also be brought under Sports Fraud Bill and Sports Code.

There is a possibility to revamp certain state associations as some of them are having more than one.
