In the first report, which is dated 14 July 2014, the Lodha Committee had recommended life bans on Chennai Super Kings’ official Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals’ Raj Kundra, and suspended IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals.
The Supreme Court had appointed the three-member Lodha Committee – retired Supreme Court Judges Ashok Bhan and RV Raveendran, being the other members — while delivering the landmark judgement in the IPL betting-fixing scandal case on January 22 last year.
The committee was constituted to determine quantum of punishment for the accused in the scandal, recommend reforms in the BCCI, and quantum of punishment, if any, for former IPL COO Sundar Raman, separately.
On January 22 last year, a two-member Supreme Court bench had given the Lodha Committee six months to submit its report, expiring on July 21 last year. On July 14, the committee submitted a report on IPL teams Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), and CSK’s Gurunath Maiyappan and RR’s part-owner Raj Kundra.
The Lodha Committee recommended life bans on Gurunath Meiyappan and Raj Kundra and suspension of CSK and RR for two years for their roles in IPL scandal. The BCCI then implemented both recommendations.
The Lodha Committee then requested the Supreme Court for an extension and the court gave it time till 31 December. The committee submitted, finally, the report with the court on Monday morning.
