Hockey India on Monday announced that it would hold its elections in July. The body, which took the decision at its special general body meeting, though did not announce the dates for the polls.
Close to 70 representatives from 29 member units attended the meeting, with SPS Tomar being the government observer. The special general body also ratified the affiliations given to 25 state units including Goa, Maharashtra, Punjab and Jharkhand.
The Sports Ministry had earlier advised HI to hold back any decision on elections till clarity was established on the status of the erstwhile hockey body- Indian Hockey Federation (IHF). The Delhi High Court had overruled on the manner in which the IHF had been derecognised to pave the way for HI.
