The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on 15 May 2013 agreed in principle on a roadmap to bring India back in the Olympic Fold after a meet with Indian Olympic Association (IOA) in Lausanne.
The International Olympic Committee on 4 December 2012 put a ban on India its failure to adhere the Olympic Charter. The meet of Lausanne was of a great importance with Indian perspective as it will decide the sporting future of India, after the ban.
The IOC in its meet with the IOA stated that during a meet of the interim body would take over from the IOA and hold fresh elections under the amended IOA constitution. This announcement was made by the IOC after the Union Sports Minister Jitendra Singh convinced IOC on the Sports Bill that the Bill as a sign of government interference is necessary for good governance of Indian sports.
