No BCCI office bearer can be a government servant
This recommendation has had the maximum opposition from BCCI. Most of the top officials at BCCI are/ have been powerful politicians.
Justice Lodha laid down the rules for new BCCI office bearer as follows: “As regards the office bearers of BCCI – president, VP, secretary, joint secretary and treasurer – certain eligibility criteria has been fixed. He must be an Indian, he must not be above age of 70, he must not be insolvent, he must not be a minister or government servant, and who has not held office in the BCCI for a cumulative period for nine years.”
However, Supreme Court on June 29th 2016 clearly said it was not against politicians being part of BCCI as long as the activities of the board promoted development of the game in the country.
Lodha Committee probably missed a trick or two in this by being too harsh.
