Indian Olympic Association (IOA) is set to be re-recognised by the Sports Ministry, which said the decision augurs well for governance of sports in the country.

The IOA decided to revoke its outrageous decision after a meeting on Monday. In reply to the Ministry's showcause notice, IOA President N Ramachandran clarified that the move to appoint Kalmadi and Chautala does not stand owing to technicalities.

"I have seen media reports that Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has cancelled the appointment of Shri Suresh Kalmadi and Shri Abhay Singh Chautala as lifetime Presidents of IOA. I am happy that IOA has reversed its decision which augurs well for governance of sports in the country," Sports Minister Vijay Goel said in a statement.

"By reversing their earlier decision, which appears to have been taken in a hurried manner, IOA has complied with its own constitutional obligation and also with conditionality approved by International Olympic Committee (IOC). In the renewed circumstances, we look forward to partnering with IOA in making India a sporting Nation," he added.
