IOA has made significant progress, decision on final warning after December 10 polls: IOC


Lausanne: The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has taken note of the “significant progress” made by the IOA in resolving its governance issues, but until the election process is completed on Dec. 10, the global body will not decide whether to withdraw the warning of a ban on India.

In September, the IOC had instructed the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) to hold elections by December or face a ban.

The Supreme Court of India then appointed former Justice L. Nageswara Rao to amend IOA’s constitution and prepare the Electoral College.
