Let me tell you that the BCCI has got the exemption due to being a private body under RTI.
For the purpose of increasing transparency and elimination of corruption in the world’s richest cricket board.
The Law Commission, chaired by former Supreme Court judge BS Chauhan, sent this suggestion to Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. Let me tell you that after the matter of spot-fixing in IPL, many major steps were taken to improve the cricket board. In its suggestion, the Law Commission has suggested bringing BCCI and all the components related to it to RTI.
The commission has suggested in its report that the BCCI should be seen as a public institution in place of the private cricket body. At present, the BCCI is registered under the Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act, but if the recommendations of the Law Commission apply, then it can be converted into public institution. In a decision in the 2016 Supreme Court, the Supreme Court had asked the Law Commission to investigate the legal requirements to bring the cricket board under RTI.
