The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed government bodies like Railways, Services and All India Universities to have a full membership with voting right in BCCI, the top cricket body of the country.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud also allowed Maharashtra and Gujarat's other cricket associations to have a membership with voting right in the BCCI.

With this, the top court modified its previous order, accepting the RM Lodha panel's recommendation on 'One State one Vote'.

In its order, the court also relaxed the contentious recommendation of cooling off period for the BCCI office bearers, saying it would now apply after two consecutive terms.

The top court's order was passed on a draft Constitution of the BCCI prepared on the basis of Lodha panel report and in consultation with the state bodies, amicus curiae and Committee of Administrators headed by former CAG Vinod Rai.

On Thursday, the court directed the new constitution to be registered within four weeks in Tamil Nadu as the BCCI has been registered as a society over there.

The top court had earlier on July 18, 2016 accepted the Lodha panel report.
