No functionality. No accountability : Members of the Hockey India – High Performance and Development committee have professed that they have been kept away and out from key meetings and decisions, including that of manoeuvring senior team chief coach Harendra Singh to the junior team.

As per the convention, the prescribed quorum for Hockey India High Performance and Development commitee is fixed at 5. The strength of the present department, is 21 and headed by Athlete Representative and former Indian hockey team player RP Singh and includes the HI president and also the CEO, Elena Normans.

But only three members – Chairman Harbinder Singh, BP Govinda (former captain of the Indian team) and Mr. Syed Mushtaque Ali ( former Indian team player)  apart from RP Singh had attended and signed the minutes of the meeting held on on January 7 when the decision had been made. (a copy of the minutes is available with The DragFlick).

What does this mean?

The Hockey India quorum is supposed to have a minimum of five members. Without a quorum, the Hockey India Federation is unable to exercise its statutory powers.

Because there was no quorum, any action taken or decisions made that day are void.

If all the formalities of a meeting are not followed correctly, the decisions taken at that meeting could be challenged.

“It’s unfortunate that Hockey India committee members think they are above the law,” said a committee member who did not wish to be named – “They are not.”
