Be Trans­par­ent and Ac­count­able: SC to BCCI

The Economic Times - - Companies -

The Supreme Court said on Mon­day that the Board of Con­trol for Cricket in In­dia (BCCI) was not a pri­vate en­tity and as a trustee of the pop­u­lar game, it has to func­tion in a trans­par­ent man­ner and be ac­count­able like any other pub­lic body. “You are not a pri­vate en­tity. You are ac­count­able and an­swer­able. You are ex­pected to act in a man­ner ex­pected of a pub­lic body. You are a trustee of a game, all your ac­tiv­i­ties must in­spire con­fi­dence,” the apex court bench of Chief Jus­tice TS Thakur and Jus­tice Fakkir Mo­hamed Ibrahim Kal­i­fulla said. “You are be­hav­ing that we will not let any change or re­forms, un­less you all (the con­stituents of the BCCI) come to­gether and de­cide to re­form,” the bench said, ask­ing, “how can you (BCCI) ob­ject to the laud­able ob­jec­tive of bring­ing trans­parency, ob­jec­tiv­ity and ac­count­abil­ity in the work­ing and func­tion­ing” of the apex crick­et­ing body.
