New Delhi: BCCI has got a big relief from the Supreme Court. After the relief from the Supreme Court, now Sourav Ganguly can remain the President of BCCI for the next three years. Apart from this, Jay Shah is also set to remain the BCCI secretary for the next three years. Actually, the Supreme Court has allowed BCCI to make amendments in the constitution of the board.
The Supreme Court has said in its decision that the cooling-off period is not required after one term of the BCCI, but it will have to be done after two terms. It is clear from the decision of the Supreme Court that Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah can continue in their posts for the coming three years.
Actually, the BCCI had appealed to the Supreme Court that their officers should be allowed to be consistently till two consecutive terms. Board said that due to being a three-year cooling off period in the state cricket associations, there are problems in its promotion in the BCCI. On this, the Supreme Court has said in its decision that after a tenure, the cooling of period is not needed, but it can be done after two tenures. It is clear that Sourav Ganguly and Jai Shah can remain intact for their post for three years.
Actually, in 2018 the new constitution of BCCI came into force. In this, it was a rule that any official who has completed two terms at the state or BCCI level, he will have to complete a cooling-off period of three years. Under this rule, on completion of six years, that person himself will be completely out of the race for election. The BCCI had sought changes in these rules in the petition. He had asked to completely repeal the rule of cooling off period. At the same time, it was also said that the constitution should be changed and the secretary should be given more power, so that the board does not have to come to the court again and again.
