Deadline for Lodha reforms revised

Following an application by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), the Bombay High Court has pushed the time line to implement the Justice Lodha Committee reforms by July 31.

On April 4, after a consent between the MCA and a petitioner (an ordinary voting member of the MCA), the court appointed a Committee of Administrators (CoA) comprising retired Supreme Court judge Hemant Gokhale and retired Bombay High Court judge V.M. Kanade to take charge of the association and initiate the process to implement the Lodha reforms and to conduct elections by June 30.

But after the Supreme Court CJI Bench, led by Dipak Misra, gave another opportunity to the BCCI members on May 1 to come up with suggestions on the Lodha reforms validated by the Apex Court on July 18, 2016, the MCA on Thursday applied to the court seeking a new deadline to conduct the association’s elections under an amended Constitution.
