Justice (retd) D K Jain appointed BCCI Ombudsman

Justice (retd) D K Jain appointed BCCI Ombudsman

The Supreme Court took two major decisions on 21 Feb by appointing Lt. Gen. Ravi Thodge, PVSM, as the third member of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) and former Supreme Court (SC) judge DK Jain as the new Ombudsman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

DK Jain, who was the former chairman of National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, will also look into allegations of misconduct against BCCI officials.

BCCI

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is the national governing body for cricket in India.

It is a consortium of state cricket associations and the state associations select their representatives who in turn elect the BCCI Chief.

Its headquarters are in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

The BCCI is an autonomous body registered under the Societies Registration Act.

Recognition has not been granted by the government.

However, given that the ICC recognises the BCCI as the apex national federation responsible for promotion of cricket in India, a team selected by BCCI is considered as the Indian team.
