Eight state units out of the 38 were barred from attending the BCCI Annual General Meeting in Mumbai on October 23 due to non-compliance in their amended constitutions. 

The picture on who will be attending the AGM became clear after BCCI electoral officer N Gopalaswami released the final electoral roll. 

Manipur, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Maharashtra, Railways, Services and Association of Indian Universities (AIU) will not have any voting rights in case there is an election during the scheduled AGM. 

The three government institutions -- Railways, Services and AIU -- were barred as they failed to form a players’ association. 

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is the nominated representative from Cricket Association of Bengal, a body which he is heading. Mohammad Azharuddin, another former India captain, will be representing the Hyderabad Cricket Association. 

Rajat Sharma (Delhi), Jay Shah (Saurashtra), Arun Singh Dhumal (Himachal Pradesh) and Brijesh Patel (Karnataka) are among the other nominated representatives. 

Most of the barred state units are likely to challenge the decision in court and that could put the AGM in jeopardy. 

“Yes we are aware of the electoral officer releasing the final electoral rolls. We will be moving the Supreme Court on Monday,” a TNCA source told PTI. 

Tamil Nadu, which is under the control of former BCCI president N Srinivasan, was supposed to be represented by its secretary SS Ramasamy while Haryana, under the rule of outgoing treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry, was set to be represented by Mrinal Ojha. 

The TNCA, which recently elected Srinivasan’s daughter Rupa Gurunath, had 21 violations in their amended constitution, including non-compliance in age cap (over 70 years), tenure of cooling off period being a few major ones. 

Even after they complied with a few later on, they didn’t adhere to the major reforms and had taken a tough stand that it is not in CoA’s authority to debar any state unit as its job is to merely file status report on compliance. Haryana and Maharashtra also toed the same line. 

Former IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla, who was supposed to be Uttar Pradesh’s representative at the AGM, has been barred for submitting a false affidavit.
