Chaired by its president Prakash Dixit, VCA in the meeting took up the Article 5 of the amended constitution.

The Supreme Court, in July, had directed BCCI and the state cricket associations to implement all the recommendations of the committee within six months.
Some of the members raised an issue as to why VCA is amending the constitution when neither the BCCI nor the other state Associations are amending their constitution.
After a detailed discussions on the issue, it was unanimously decided that the “recommendations, now having been approved by the Supreme Court, the same are binding on us and whether right or wrong, whether we agree or disagree, we have to respect the decision of the Supreme Court and implement the recommendations.”
The House authorised the executive committee to fulfil the purpose and intent of the Lodha Committee recommendations and to give effect to the order of Supreme Court of July 18, a VCA release said here.
Further, the elections would be held on or before November 15, 2016 to elect the new body as per the timeline given by the Lodha Committee.
The voting process commenced immediately after the discussions were over.
A total of 730 votes were polled, out of which 727 voted in favour of the proposed amendments, whereas three members voted against the amendments.
Therefore, the proposed amendments to the constitution of the VCA were passed by a thumping majority.
