28 April 2016 Current Affairs: Supreme Court appointed senior advocate Gopal Subramanium as ‘amicus curiae’ and requested his assistance to explore how the recommendations of the Justice RM Lodha committee could be implemented on 25 April 2016. 

The recommendations pertain to large-scale structural reforms that the BCCI has been resisting.

Further, he will examine the main matter in which the state associations argued that the implementation of several recommendations of the RMLodha committee would violate their fundamental right under Article 19 (i)(c) of the Indian Constitution to form an association.He will also assist the court in establishing the legal validity of certain recommendations of the Lodha committee, if the same were to be implemented by the court on the BCCI.On examining the report, he may also suggest modifications to the committee's recommendations if he feels the implementation of the same would be unconstitutional.

The amicus curiae's findings are not bindable to the court but are taken seriously as the court itself asked for the assistance.Subramanium is a high-profile and widely respected senior advocate who also served as the solicitor general of India from 2009 to 2011.
