subject:Directions from the Supreme Court Committee
Thank you for the arrangements made by you for the meeting of the Committee on Sunday, 28th August.
At this meeting, the Supreme Court Committee has taken certain decisions, which require action from your end on behalf of the BCCI. In this regard, I am called upon to issue the following directions to you which require compliance.
- As per the first Compliance Report submitted by the Secretary BCCI, it was stated that an AGM of the BCCI is proposed to be called on 21.9.2016 to transact ‘routine business’. The Committee now directs that this AGM be limited only to routine business concerning the past year (2015-2016), and that any business or matters relating to the next year (2016-2017) be dealt with only after the adoption of the MoA and Rules as per the recommendations of the Committee in accordance with the same.
- At the meeting with the Secretary BCCI on 9th August 2016, specific directions were given to ensure that all bids, tenders and contracts entered into by and on behalf of the BCCI after 18.7.2016 are to comply with the requirements of the recommendations in the Report effective from the date of the Supreme Court judgement itself. You are directed to send us the status of compliance with such norms of all such bids, tenders and and contracts entered into by and on behalf of the BCCI after 18.7.2016. Please ensure that this is sent by 3.9.2016.
- A Second Set of Timelines have been concluded by the Committee for the implementation by the BCCI and the State Associations. These are attached to the present email and you are directed to forward the same to all the State Associations by 3.9.2016. Kindly send us a line in confirmation once this is done.
- You are to send us the contact details including email addresses of the State Associations and their principal Office Bearers (President and Secretary) by 1.9.2016. The same is awaited.
I might remind you that the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court says as follows with reference to the role of those to whom directions are issued by the Committee:
“92. Needless to say that the BCCI and all concerned shall cooperate and act in aid of the Committee and its directives. Should any impediments arise, the Committee shall be free to seek appropriate directions from this Court by filing a status report in that regard.”
The Committee has also recorded certain decisions in accordance with the directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court which are recorded in a Supplementary Report that is annexed to this mail. This would require certain rectifications to be carried out to the Rules and Regulations before they are formally adopted by the BCCI. This would also have application to the disqualifications of Office Bearers at the State Associations.
