ad-hoc body on January 10.

of the Rajasthan Hockey Association moved the court and sought
a stay on the formation and affiliation of the new body.

disaffiliated RHA and that matter is also in litigation.
The RHA headed by former MLA Rajkumar Jaipal pleaded to
the court that there Association is in existence for the last
60 years, managing the affairs of the game in the state and
also has the sanctity under the Sports Act.
The Lawyer of the RHA Anil Mehta pleaded that the Hockey
India had no right to disband the RHA and grant affiliation to
an ad-hoc body.
The single bench consisting of Justice RS Chouhan of the
Rajasthan High Court Jaipur granted the stay.
