A section of the Delhi and District Cricket Association members have served a notice to call an Extraordinary General Meeting of the association. As the DDCA is registered as a company under the Companies Act of 2013, the members have invoked the provisions of the act to compel the DDCA Executive to call the EGM.
Insidesport.co is in possession of the notice served to call the Extraordinary General Meetings of the DDCA under the provisions of the companies act.
The notice signed by 564 members meets the minimum requisite numbers (1/10 of the total voting strength) to make it binding for the Company (DDCA) to adhere to the demands raised by the members.
The Board of Directors are advised to call the meeting within 21 days from the service of the notice, dated October 10, 2018. Copies of the notice are also served to the DDCA Ombudsman, Registrar of Companies and the DDCA Board of Directors through the secretary.
The members in the notice have also set the agenda for the meeting, with the following key points:
- Election of the treasurer as the post is lying vacant following the disqualification of the elected treasurer under the terms of the new BCCI constitution
- The issue of the appointments of the DDCA Employees – CEO, COO, CFO, GM, Security Protocol Officer
- Ad hoc sports working committee and sports working committee elections
- Voting rights to all the affiliated clubs of the DDCA, just in line with the leading State cricket associations in the country
- Appointment of the cricket recruitment committee and conflict of interest issues with regard to the cricket committee, selection committee, sports staff and coaches
- Appointment of contractual employees; and
- Constitution amendment to give more powers to the DDCA president
The notice further states that the “Company” (DDCA) is bound to call the Extraordinary General Meeting under Section 100 (2) of the Companies Act 2013.
Copies of the notice are served to the DDCA Board of Directors through the secretary; DDCA Ombudsman Mr Justice (Retd) BD Ahmad; Registrar of Companies, Delhi; Committee of Administrators in the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the members of the DDCA.
Meanwhile, the DDCA (Rajat Sharma group) has moved an SLP in the Supreme Court to quash the orders of the Additional District Judge, Delhi, to put a stay on the resolution passed by the DDCA Board of Directors to suspend the elected secretary, Vinod Tihara. The DDCA has also moved an application with the District Judge, Delhi, to shift the Vinod Tihara versus DDCA case from the court of the Additional District Judge, who has passed the order to stay Tihara’s suspension.
The move is also being seen as a show of strength by the Vinod Tihara group, which is targeting to defeat the faction led by the DDCA president on the floor of the house.
