India has not signed the 1951 United Nations Refugee Convention on the Status of Refugees, but we were too unsure of ourselves, he immediately put those into action.First thing we did was interact with BCCI officials — all except the President and Secretary appeared (both responded to questionnaire)" Justice Lodha said in the press conference adding that a lot of former India captains were also provided with an opportunity to respond to the questionnaire Key points of the reforms suggested by Justice Lodha and his committee: * One state one cricket body: One association of each state will be a full member and have right to vote The committee said one unit should represent one state while taking away the voting rights of institutional and city-based units * A person cannot be a BCCI office-bearer and a state association office-bearer at the same time * CEO-run organisation: Committee also suggested the restructuring of the BCCI’s administrative set-up proposing the position of a CEO accountable to a nine-member apex council An apex council for the BCCI comprising 9 members of which 5 should be elected 2 should be representatives of players association and one woman CEO to be assisted by 6 professional managers and the team of CEO and managers will be accountable to the apex council * Under RTI: To ensure transparency in its functioning important to bring the body under the purview of the Right to Information Act something that the Board has vehemently opposed in the past citing its autonomy "Since the BCCI performs public functions people have the right to know the functions and facilities and other activities of the BCCI.We have recommended the legislature must seriously consider bringing BCCI within the purview of the RTI Act" Lodha said * Formation of a players’ association:This will be formed by a steering committee headed by former Home Secretary G K Pillai and comprising former captains Mohinder Amarnath and Anil Kumble along with women’s legend Diana Edulji The committee said that the players’ association will include all those who have played first-class cricket Also a robust agent registration system to safeguard players interests to be formed * IPL revamp: The committee called for IPL and BCCI to have separate governing bodies IPL Governing Council will comprise nine members The Secretary and the Treasurer of the BCCI will be ex-officio members of this IPL governing council Two other members of the IPL Governing Council will be nominated/elected by the full members Of the remaining five two will be the nominees of franchises one will be a representative of the players association (so one needs to be formed) one will be a nominee of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India’s office * Independent authorities: The committee suggested three authorities to help with the BCCI governance as follows: – An ombudsman – who’s duty would be to preside internal disputes resolution mechanism dispute between BCCI and members BCCI and associates breaches by administrators players team officials – to be appointed The committee proposed that he be a former judge of the Supreme Court or a Chief Justice of High Court – An ethics officer – whose task is to administer the issues relating to the conflict of interest misdemeanour misbehaviour or corruption issues – to be appointed The committee suggested that be a former High Court judge – An Electoral Officer who would oversee the entire election process related to the office bearers namely prep of voters list issues of eligibility of office bearers etc The officer will be nominated weeks before the date of election * Former IPL COO Sundar Raman cleared of all corruption charges Read more on that here * Senior selection committee to be made up of former international Test cricketers with the most capped former player among the three being the chairman Other selection committees to comprise only three members * Recommendation made to legalize betting (with strong safeguards) except for those covered by the BCCI and IPL regulations Also to make spot-fixing a criminal offence What Justice Lodha said: On the player’s association: "Most of the players who have played first-class both men and women and who have retired from competitive cricket will be in this association This association shall be assigned functions and will be constituted and run with the financial support of the BCCI However they will not act as a minion The idea is to give players voice use their expertise and skills for the development and betterment of the game" On the overall revamp: "First thing is about the structure and the constitution As you know presently the BCCI has 30 full members Some of these members do not have any territory like Services Railways etc Some of them do not play tournaments Some of the states have multiple members like Maharashtra has three Gujarat has 3 With the interactions we had except few it was broadly represented to us that one state as a unit of representation in BCCI is a very fair idea" On IPL Governing Council: "The Governing Council of IPL will be entitled to take all decisions concerning IPL which includes the decision relating to financial matters However Governing Council will be answerable to the General body of the BCCI So limited autonomy is proposed for the IPL GC" On better management of grants to state associations: "We have recommended a uniformity in the structure and constitution of state associations like the associations must not have office for life or office for more than nine years . separation of social and cricket activities in the state associations no proxy voting Their accounts must be audited by the BCCI to maintain transparency in functioning They must comply with all the directives of the BCCI in putting in place issues such as resolution of conflict of interest administering the code of conduct behaviour and corruption issues Any breach of the directives by state associations would dis-entitle them from the grant of the subsidy and other grants from the BCCI" Background to the Lodha committee reforms report: In September BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur and IPL
