International Olympic Committee threatens India with suspension over delay in elections

With elections in the Indian Olympic Association due since December 2021, the IOC has urged the Indian body to solve its issues internally or face suspension.

The Indian Olympic Association's (IOA) failure to hold elections that have been due since December 2021 has landed them in trouble. The International Olympic Committee has warned India that a suspension is looming on the horizon if they can't solve their institutional issues.

According to a Times of India report, the IOC issued a stern warning on the issue of autonomy and violation of the Olympic charter and asked the IOA to confirm the election dates without any further delay.

The letter further stated that if the Indian Olympic body fails to hold elections in the coming weeks then IOC will have no other choice but to suspend the IOA till their operations normalise.

Notably, the global body's caution came four days after Narinder Batra's resignation from the post of president of the IOA and the International hockey federation.
