Union Sports Ministry derecognises Indian Olympic Association

Union Sports Ministry derecognises Indian Olympic Association
02 January 2017 Current Affairs: Union Sports Minister Vijay Goel in the last week of December 2016 informed that the ministry has suspended the recognition granted to Indian Olympic Association (IOA).

The decision was taken after the appointments of Suresh Kalmadi and Abhay Chautala as life presidents of the national Olympic body.

Goel stated that "the day the IOA took this decision to appoint Kalmadi and Chautala as life presidents, the government clarified that they don't agree with it as the decision was against basic ethics. That's why the government has decided to suspend their recognition till it reverses the order."

After the suspension, the IOA will not be able to enjoy any kind of assistance from the Union Government.

Following the appointment of Kalmadi and Chautala, IOA's assistant vice-president Narinder Batra had resigned from his post in protest over the appointments.

Indian Olympic Association : The Indian Olympic Association is responsible for selecting athletes to represent India at the Olympic Games, Asian Games and other international athletic meets.It acts as the Indian Commonwealth Games Association.

It is also responsible for selecting athletes to represent India at the Commonwealth Games.

India’s participation in the 1920 and 1924 Olympics created the backdrop for the creation of the IOA. Therefore, the body was formed in 1927. Since then, it is being officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as India's national Olympic organisation.

In December 2012, the IOA was suspended on the basis of corruption, government interference, and not following guidelines of the IOC.  It was in only in May 2013 that IOC decided to lift the ban on IOA.
