"There are a few issues that NE states' representatives need clarity. The major issue is when would be their cooling off period start. They were not full voting members before 2018. So they have a valid claim that their tenure should start with this year's state association elections and cooling off starts after three years," a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

Another teething issue is the release of funds so that they can carry on with their infrastructure development and conduct of local matches.

"They need funds but as the amicus has pointed out that after scrutiny if they are found compliant, the release of funds shall not be a problem," the official said.
