Vinod Rai, the CoA chief has said that the Central Information Commission’s (CIC) plea to bring the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) under the umbrella of Right to Information (RTI) Act cannot be implemented.
“We have been expressly precipitated that BCCI is not a government body. Thus, it should not be covered under RTI. We have already approached the Chennai High Court regarding the issue in May. We have specifically told in our response that the CIC plea cannot be implemented as the matter is subjudice,” he said.
According to Rai, three aspects as sought by the CIC, namely the minutes of the selectors’ meeting, the status of players’ injuries and anti-doping issues, will not be made public.
