The Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (COA) on 26 March 2017 issued a seven-point instruction for the three existing BCCI office bearers, namely Vice President CK Khanna, Joint Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary and Treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhry.
The Administrators have summoned Amitabh and Aniruddh at the BCCI headquarters to make it clear that they should follow every instruction given by the committee.
The instructions will also apply on Chief Executive Officer Rahul Johri and Chief Financial Officer Santosh Rengnekar.
Besides, it also states that if COA wants to communicate anything to office bearers, they would do so through the CEO. In addition, all legal documents would be cleared by the COA.
It states that all payments will be jointly cleared by joint secretary and CEO. In the case of disagreement over a particular payment, COA’s decision will be final. The COA will have the final say in rules that are applicable.
These instructions were issued two days after the Supreme Court asked the Committee of Administrators appointed by it to release funds to state cricket associations, including HPCA, the body that is holding the last India-Australia test.
On the other hand, a bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra also considered the plea of Maharashtra, Karnataka and Jharkhand state cricket associations, which have organised the last three test matches of the ongoing series, and asked the CoA to release funds to them in accordance with the terms of the contract.
