No final decision will be taken on Lalit Modi's case in next week's BCCI Special General Body Meeting, which will only decide whether to refer the suspended IPL Commissioner's fate to the Disciplinary Committee, Board secretary N Srinivasan said.

Srinivasan said the SGM on Saturday would decide whether to approve his observation that Modi's reply to the three show cause notices served on him mainly on charges of financial irregularities was "unacceptable".

And if his observation is ratified, Srinivasan said, the SGM would reconstitute the Disciplinary Committee from which BCCI President Shashank Manohar has recused himself as requested by Modi.

"...there are two items (on agenda for the meeting), and one is to ratify the action of Secretary in referring this to the Disciplinary Committee. In which case we would re-constitute the disciplinary committee from which Mr Manohar recused himself," Srinivasan said.

"The general body is going to decide my action in referring it to the Disciplinary Committee. If they approve then the Disciplinary Committee would be re-constituted because Mr Manohar has recused himself so I don't understand what is being said," Srinivasan told 'NDTV Profit'.

Interim IPL chief Chirayu Amin and BCCI Vice President Arun Jaitley are the two other members of the Disciplinary Committee.

Explaining the process, the BCCI secretary said, "Our procedure is that if the members in the general meeting approve or ratify the decision I took, then the Disciplinary Committee would be reconstituted and then they would hold a hearing and follow due process and then their report would again come to the general body. This is the process we follow," he said.

Srinivasan also dismissed allegations of being biased against Modi, who had accused the BCCI secretary -- who also owns the Chennai Super Kings team -- of having conflict of interest and acting out of malice against the suspended IPL chief.
