New Delhi: The Committee of Administrators will be meeting the officials of the six North-East states in the National Capital to resolve a few issues, helping them to be fully Lodha Compliant before conducting elections of the state units.

With CoA announcing the BCCI elections on 22 October and aiming to finish the state body polls by 30 September, the six North-East states need clarity as they go into their maiden elections after acquiring full member status.

"There are a few issues that NE states' representatives needs clarity. The major issue is when would be their cooling off period start. They were not full voting members before 2018. So they have a valid claim that their tenure should start with this year's state association elections and cooling off starts after three years," a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

Another teething issue is release of funds so that they can carry on with their infrastructure development and conduct of local matches.

"They need funds but as the amicus has pointed out that after scrutiny, if they are found compliant, release of funds shall not be a problem," the official said.
