The change is due to the State Assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra, scheduled for October 21

Following the Supreme Court order of September 20, which stated categorically that the disqualification rule to contest election to the Apex Council of the State Associations would apply only to the office-bearers, and therefore in order to enable the State Associations (BCCI members) to comply with three Apex Court orders (July 18, 2016, August 9, 2018 and September 20, 2019) the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has changed the election date deadline from September 28 to October 4. 

The CoA has also rescheduled the BCCI election date to October 23 because of the election schedule of the State Legislatures in Maharashtra and Haryana (Oct. 21 to 24).

The CoA has advised the electoral officers of the State Associations not to re-amend their constitutions approved by it based on the Supreme Court order of August 9, 2018. 

In an advisory issued on Tuesday, the CoA said: “The member State Associations are directed to conduct the election in accordance with the constitution approved by the COA in terms of the Supreme Court order of August 9, 2018, and the relaxation granted by the same court in its order dated September 20, 2019.”

The State Associations which have not brought their constitutions in line with the BCCI Constitution run the risk of their election results not being recognised.”
