Person to manage day-to-day affairs of Indian Table Tennis Federation: Report of Court Appointed Committee


A review of the functioning of the Table Tennis Federation of India (TTFI) by a court-appointed committee has revealed dysfunction in the governing body at the national level.

The Delhi High Court had appointed a three-member panel to review the workings of the TTFI following a petition by table tennis star Manika Batra alleging professional misconduct.

In its report, the committee said that the TTFI office in Delhi is not only remote but also inaccessible. In addition, the rental period for the office is over. ET Sport has reviewed the report.

The committee pointed out that the main officials of the federation do not reside in Delhi – its general secretary is in Lucknow, the chief executive is in Ajmer and the official who carries out the functions of the federation is in Kerala. And there is no one to run the day-to-day affairs of the body, he said.

Former Jammu and Kashmir High Court Chief Justice Gita Mittal leads the committee which counts senior lawyer Chetan Mittal and athlete SD Mudgil as other members.

The information requested includes “details of movable and immovable property of the federation; federation budget; sources of income; budget allocation and expenditure; holdings of fixed deposit receipts and bank accounts; details of financial compliance and payments to be made by the federation; deadlines and deadlines; all matters requiring the approval and action of the committee and full particulars of impending events”.

Regarding the location of the federation’s current office, the report said the industrial complex building near Nangoi in Delhi is “extremely difficult” to locate. He said the committee found it “extremely difficult and inconvenient” to visit the office.

The committee suggested that a better office be identified for the federation.

Disappointed with the functioning of the federation, the court ordered on February 11 that the management of the sports body be withdrawn from its leaders.

The instructions came on a petition filed by Commonwealth Games gold medalist and award winner Khel Ratna Batra, who was dropped from India’s contingent for the Asian Table Tennis Championships. She went to court last year alleging national coach Soumyadeep Roy pressured her to ‘re-do’ an Olympic qualifier in favor of one of his trainees.

Based on the report of another committee set up to look into the charges brought by Batra, the court observed that the appointment of Roy, who went on to lead an academy, as national coach was prima facie a case of conflict of interest.
