The old guard of BCCI continued to show their defiance to the Committee of Administrators (COA) with only six state units filing their response to "Due Diligence Report' prepared by Deloitte on the functioning of these associations.

It was learnt that some of the reports were really adverse and the COA had sent a notification asking for their response way back on 20 March.

But save Goa, Odisha, Sikkim, Tripura, UP and Vidarbha, none of the other units bothered to send their responses.

A peeved COA sent another missive to state units on Wednesday, asking them to file their responses by 12 June, which is the final deadline.

A BCCI source present in the UK confirmed that COA has sent not one but two letters – the second one asking to furnish the details of the eligible office-bearers.


Incidentally only 12 units have responded to this diktat which was sent on 25 May to various units.

They are Vidarbha, Kerala, Hyderabad, Tripura, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Sikkim, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Services, Bihar , Mumbai.

The notification pertaining to Deloitte Report that has been accessed by PTI states: "Dear Members, This has reference to the individual emails dated 20 March 2017 by which the Committee of Administrators had forwarded the Due Diligence Reports prepared by Deloitte/ PWC/ Grant Thornton (as the case may be) in relation to your respective Associations with a request to provide your response(s) to the same.

"The Committee of Administrators once again requests the remaining State Associations to provide their response(s) to the respective Due Diligence Reports that were forwarded to them. The said response(s) should be provided at the earliest and in any event not later than 12 June 2017."
