The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will not conduct an Annual General Meeting before September 30 - as per BCCI's rules and regulations.
The BCCI has decided to postpone its Annual General Meeting indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic as the meeting cannot be held online. BCCI secretary Jay Shah wrote in a letter to state associations informing about the postponement of the AGM.
"Owing to the prevailing coronavirus pandemic, the Registration Department, Tamil Nadu Government have extended the period for a registered society under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act, 1975, to conduct an Annual General Meeting by three months, from September 2020 to December 2020," Shah wrote in the letter as reported by PTI.
"The Press Release further states that an Annual General Meeting of a registered society cannot be conducted online. It refers to a Government Order no. 89 dated 16th June 2020 issued by the Commercial Taxes and Registration Department ('Notification') which reiterates the above."
"We also sought a legal opinion regarding the applicability of the Press Release and the Notification on BCCI and as per their view, the same is applicable and BCCI is not required to conduct its Annual General Meeting by 30 September 2020," the letter stated.
"We will keep you informed regarding the date of the Annual General Meeting," Shah wrote.
Sourav Ganguly was appointed as the BCCI president during the last BCCI AGM which was held in October 2019, ending a 33-month tenure of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators.
