The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) on Tuesday informed the Supreme Sourt that 12 of the State Associations have deposited the funds received by the country’s main body and that they will not use them until the further orders from the country’s apex court.
In an affidavit filed before the Supreme Court, BCCI’s General Manager of Administration and Game Development, Ratnakar Shetty, said that the board has received confirmation letters in this regard from 12 members associations.
The State bodies that have sent letters to the BCCI in this regard include Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Mumbai, Punjab, Saurashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh.
“The BCCI has received from 12 member associations letters stating that the funds received by them as due from BCCI between September 26, 2016 and October 1, 2016 have been kept by the respective associations in term deposit and that no part of the said amount will be utilised by them until further orders of the Supreme Court,”
On October 21, the apex court had stifled assets to the state relationship till BCCI president Anurag Thakur and the units “attempt to actualize” the Justice R M Lodha board of trustees proposals on changes.
The Supreme Court, in a huge number of headings, had looked for arrangement of an “autonomous examiner” to “investigate and review” the wage and use of the money rich body other than going into high-esteem contracts granted to different substances granted by it.
“BCCI shall forthwith cease and desist from making any disbursement of funds for any purpose whatsoever to any state association until and unless the state association concerned adopts a resolution undertaking to implement recommendations of the Committee as accepted by this Court in its judgement dated 18 July 2016.”
