Indian Olympic body remains suspended
(12-11 10:14)

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said that a suspension of the Indian Olympic Association was being maintained.
The IOC suspended India in December last year for flouting the Olympic charter in its election process.
Bach said that if the question of autonomy no longer posed a problem, the proposals made by the IOC on governance have not yet all been accepted by the IOA.
“We maintained the suspension,'' said Bach after a meeting of the IOC executive board.
“The roadmap we have established before with the Indian Olympic Committee implies also the elections four weeks after the approval of these statutes.
“So we are looking forward to the implementation of these new rules by transparent, open and democratic election in the IOA.
“We have already taken precaution for the athletes to make sure the athletes will not suffer from these procedures.''
If this election does not take place before the Sochi Olympics in February or does not satisfy the IOC, Indian athletes can still participate in the Games, Bach said.
