IOC tells India’s olympic body to hold elections or face ban

India’s Olympic body faces another ban over governance-related issues if it fails to hold elections in the “coming weeks”, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said.

Indian Olympic Association (IOA) elections were due last December but have been held up by a court case seeking to change its constitution in line with rules stipulated by the national sports code.

In a letter sent to the IOA’s executive council, the IOC and Olympic Council of Asia said they were following developments “with great concern”.

“It is very unfortunate to note that multiple legal proceedings have been initiated, which have only caused delays and created unnecessary complications so far,” the letter said, urging the IOA to resolve the situation and confirm the election date “without any further delay”.

The letter added that if the IOA failed to organise the elections in the coming weeks the IOC would have other option but to consider protective measures, “including a suspension”.
