The Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) will henceforth accept applications under the Right To Information (RTI) Act.

In a significant move aimed at enforcing accountability, the DDCA conveyed the decision through a press release here on Tuesday.

“Recently, the Law Commission of India has recommended that BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) should be subject to the Right to Information Act since all other National and State sports federations are amenable to the Right to Information Act. In keeping with this recommendation of the Law Commission of India and various judicial dicta, this State Association should be transparent and accessible to the public,” said the press release.

The release stated, “The DDCA is a company and is bound by the provisions of the Companies Act and as such has to make accessible various important documents such as the Minutes book of the Company, Balance sheets etc. The Lodha reforms and judgements of the Supreme Court and High Court of Delhi have sought to make cricket bodies like the DDCA accountable and RTI is a step towards that objective.”
