The Committee of Administrators (CoA) is likely to hold a workshop to help State associations — especially those in the north-east of India — become fully compliant with the Lodha Committee recommendations.

According to the 10th Status Report submitted by the CoA to the Supreme Court, there are 17 State units which are substantially compliant, 10 partially compliant and seven non-compliant.

“The CoA is likely to hold a workshop to explain us the finer details which we need to address in order to become fully Lodha compliant. The workshop is set to be held in Mumbai,” a senior office bearer of a North-Eastern State told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

‘Little things’ to sort out

“Like in new BCCI constitution, the CEO needs to have earlier managed a company with a turnover of ₹100 crore. Now, why would such a corporate want to work in North-Eastern State. I was told that ₹100 crore turnover is only for the BCCI. So these are little things that we need to sort out,” the official added.

Providing another example, he said, “Then there is Kerala, where for becoming president of the State association, a person needs to attend six Annual General Meetings, which is not required as per the new constitution.”
