BCCI to screen all officials attending AGM

first_imgA stricter Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) doesn’t want to leave any loophole to be exploited during its 82nd annual general body meeting in Mumbai on September 19 and 20, especially if an election to any post takes place.It is for this reason that the president-elect N Srinivasan, who succeeds Shashank Manohar, is keen to know who all will be attending the meeting.The BCCI has asked its constituent units to authorise a representative for the meeting and the names in writing should reach its headquarters in Mumbai ” not later than 4pm on September 17″, two full days before the AGM, as no change will be allowed after that.”The BCCI has asked all its members to send a copy of the associations’ constitution along with the names of the persons being authorised,” an association official told MAIL TODAY .The Board has also told all the members – 30 full, four associate and three affiliate units – that the officials’ authorisation should be in ” accordance with the constitution of the member association”.”According to the Board’s intimation, the names will then be scrutinised and the final list of valid authorised representatives of the associations would be put up in the conference room of the BCCI headquarters at 6 pm the same day, September 17,” the official said.A strict procedure for elections has also been put in place. The filing of nominations for the posts of five vice-presidents, one secretary, one joint secretary and one treasurer should be made between 10 am and 3 pm on September 18.advertisementThe valid nominations, following scrutiny of the names, will be displayed at 4 pm the same day and the candidates can withdraw their names by 6 pm. The final list of candidates will be published at 7 pm.A candidate will have to fill a form and he should have a proposer and a seconder, both of whom should be eligible to attend the AGM and vote. A person can contest more than one post. The term of all the posts is two years, with a provision for a year’s extension if no one opposes the incumbent.”If no election takes place, it means the election form is redundant. But election takes place, then several people would use this form,” said a Board source, referring to the ongoing behind-the-scenes parleys.However, sources say elections to any post are highly unlikely this time as all posts are expected to be filled unopposed.Current secretary Srinivasan was chosen president unopposed at last year’s AGM, as per the established practice.last_img
