Supreme Court dismisses BCCI review plea against Lodha panel reforms

In a setback to BCCI, the Supreme Court has refused to review its verdict in which a slew of direction was passed to transform the world's richest cricket body by barring ministers and officials from the board and setting an age limit of 70 years for office-bearers.The apex court had on July 18 passed the order on the recommendations of Justice Lodha committee and ordered a comprehensive revamp of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over the next six months, to be overseen by the committee.It had also directed implementation of the contentious one state, one vote suggestion and had closed the doors on those who for decades had remained in the BCCI governing body by prescribing a maximum of three terms, each of three years, with the caveat that there would a cooling-off period between two terms.

Aggrieved by the order, BCCI and cricket association of different states filed a review petition asking the apex court to re-examine the issue. It had also pleaded that its plea for review be heard in open court. Review petition is normally decided by bench in chamber without giving opportunity to parties to argue the case.A bench of Chief Justice T S Thakur and S A Bobde, however, dismissed review plea on November 10 but the order has been uploaded on Tuesday. "We have examined the grounds urged in support of the prayer for review. We find no error apparent on the face of the record to warrant recall of our order dated July 18, 2016. The review petitions are, accordingly, dismissed," it said.
