The Sports Ministry de-recognized the Archery Association of India (AAI) with immediate effect for violation of Sports Code during its election of President. The move from government came after High Court in its Civil Writ Petition had directed that the government shall not grant recognition to the Archery Association of India unless they hold elections as per the Sports Code.
The ministry also decided to suspend recognition to Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) after the International Boxing Association provisionally suspended the Indian federation for "possible manipulation" in its recent elections.
What are the violations? What are the directions for AAI?
