Business as usual: BCCI CoA chief Vinod Rai
Despite the loss of two members the former CAG is confident of implementing reforms
BCCI CoA chief Vinod Rai addresses concerns about the departure of two members, and his resolve to implement the mandate given to them by the SC 
The BCCI’s four member Committee of Administrators (CoA) will soon be losing a member, banker Vikram Limaye, who will take over as MD and CEO of the NSE. 
Appointed earlier this year by the Supreme Court, the committee’s chairman Vinod Rai, on the sidelines of an event in Mumbai, dispels concerns regarding the CoA’s functioning.
On Ramchandra Guha and Vikram Limaye’s departure 
“Vikram is still working with us and will be leaving only after July 15 after getting the SC’s permission. Since they were appointed by the SC itself, the apex court will provide the replacements. Our work will go on.” 
On reports that he will quit if the Lodha recommendations are not implemented by September 
“No. I don’t know who concocted that. I had said we will fix the annual general meeting in September and it is due. Once the democratic setup takes over by October 31, we will wind up shop.” 
On the stalemate over tenures and selection process of BCCI office bearers 
“It’s working, but there are always some disruptive elements with vested interests. As far as we are concerned, it is working and we will take it forward. We will stick to our schedule. There is no doubt in my mind about it. The AGM will be in September and they will pass it [recommendations].”
