New Delhi, May 28 (IANS) Hockey India (HI), which claims to be the sole governing body of the sport in the country despite the Delhi High Court decision of reinstating the Indian Hockey Federation (IHF), Friday convened its Special General Council Meeting here June 14.
HI is planning to hold its elections before July 5 and has also got support from the International Hockey Federation (FIH), though the sports ministry has asked it not to go ahead with the polls without consulation with the government in view of the court order.

A HI statement said Friday that ratification of affiliation granted to various units will be one of the issues on the agenda of the meeting.

HI, in a communication to all its member units, asked one male and one female representatives each from the affliated associations to attend the meeting.

HI also asked the affiliated units to give the names of their representatives by June 11.

“From state/UT, one male and one female representative and from Institutional Board only one member (either gender) have to come for the Special General Council Meeting and they should carry photo ID,” said HI secretary general Narinder Batra in the letter issued to the affiliated units.

“All states which have legal cases going on should carry their case file, all upto date orders and also a legal opinion from a lawyer about their present status,” it said.
