The SC-appointed committee also directed the State associations to “not re-amend their constitutions” which were already approved by them.

“The member State Associations are also directed to conduct the elections in accordance with the constitution approved by the CoA in terms of the order of the Hon’ble Supreme Court dated 9th August, 2018 and the relaxation granted by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in its order dated 20th September, 2019,” the statement read.

The state units will run the risk of their election results being not recognised if they don’t adhere to the BCCI constitution.

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