CRICKET- The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been brought under the ambit of RTI Act.

The Central Information Commission, on Monday, ruled that the status, nature and functional characteristics of the BCCI fulfil required conditions of Section 2(h) of the RTI Act.

“The SC has also reaffirmed that the BCCI is the ‘approved’ national-level body holding virtually monopoly rights to organize cricketing events in the country,” Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said.
