The Supreme Court on Thursday appointed Justice DK Jain as the new ombudsman for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Justice Jain, who is a former Supreme Court Judge, will act as an ombudsman to resolve disputes. He is scheduled to take charge immediately.
A bench comprising Justices S A Bobde and A M Sapre said: "We are happy that by consent of the parties and the suggestions, the name of retired Justice D K Jain has been agreed to be appointed as the ombudsman in the BCCI. We accordingly appoint Justice (retired) D K Jain as first ombudsman in the BCCI."
He is also the first ombudsman under the new BCCI Constitution approved by the Supreme Court in August last year.
