Narvekar expelled from GCA for 6 yrs


The Goa Cricket Association (GCA) on Sunday expelled its former president Dayanand Narvekar who is accused of misuse of funds from the primary membership.


The Special General Body of GCA at its meeting held in Porvorim announced Narvekar’s ouster after a voice vote of 93/3. 96 clubs and life members attended the meeting.

Narvekar had been found guilty of alleged financial irregularities, misuse of funds and impropriety by the Managing Committee which met on May 10, said GCA president Vinod Phadke.

In all 96 clubs and life members attended the meeting to discuss these grounds with Narvekar across the table.

Denying the allegations, Narvekar said the then Executive Committee had approved the balance sheet detailing utilisation of funds.

“All allegations against me are false and are levelled without any evidence. I did not receive any notice regarding any irregularities and misuse of funds,” he told reporters.

Narvekar said he had placed all relevant documents and expenditure before the then Executive Committee and the Managing Committee too had approved them in the General Body meeting of the Goa Cricket Association.

On his son’s expulsion as Ranji player by GCA for allegedly forging his birth certificate, Narvekar said, “It was a clerical mistake.”

The Goa Cricket Association (GCA) had in July expelled Ganeshraj Narvekar for six years after he was accused of forging a birth certificate to play in junior level tournaments.

Narvekar demanded that the GCA should be brought under the ambit of RTI Act.
