Supreme Court to hear BCCI’s plea on the 28th of July


The BCCI’s plea for an amendment in their Constitution will now be heard by the Supreme Court on the 28th of July.

A bench consisting of members who are Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, along with Justices Krishna Murari, Hima Kohli and senior advocate Maninder Singh will preside over the plea.

PV Narasimha, previously a part of this amicus curiae is now a Supreme Court judge.

The BCCI in its plea wants that the cooling-off period should be done away with completely.

Earlier, in the RM Lodha committee, a three-year cooling-off period was recommended for officials completing six years of their tenures.

At that time, the BCCI had accepted the reform but now they want a change.

Both BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah will be completing their tenures soon.

This is why the BCCI wants a hearing on the issue as soon as possible.

Ganguly and Shah have already served the BCCI for six years.

If the amendment is brought into place, then Ganguly and Shah can continue in their positions.
