New Delhi: The Supreme Court today allowed
the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and Hockey India (HI) to
field the men`s and women`s teams in the October Commonwealth
Games.

"We direct as an interim measure that IOA and HI will
field the Indian team for men amd women hockey in the
Commonwealth Games," a Bench comprising R V Raveendran and H L
Gokhale said.

The order was passed after Hockey India`s rival Indian
Hockey Federation admitted that it was not affiliated to the
International Hockey Federation (FIH).

Indian Olympic Association also said that it recognises
only Hockey India as the National Federation.
