BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jaisha were relieved by the Supreme Court. It has cleared the way for them to continue in their positions for another two years. The Supreme Court accepted the BCCI’s constitutional amendments by removing the ‘cooling off period’. The Supreme Court ruled that office bearers can have a continuous tenure of 12 years, including six years in the State Association and six years in the BCCI. They got this opportunity after the Supreme Court gave permission for changes in the recommendations of the Lodha Committee.

What is ‘cooling off period’?

Any office bearer who holds office in the governing body of the State Association, BCCI or both for a period of three years (two terms) shall not serve in the next term. Should compete after taking a break of three years. If they are in the positions in the state association and in the BCCI, it is as if they have taken responsibility for two terms.. According to this calculation, BCCI president Ganguly and secretary Jaisha should resign from their positions. But now the removal of that rule from the constitution of BCCI.. With the approval of the Supreme Court, both of them can continue in their positions for another two years.
