Olympics: IOC maintains Indian suspension
LAUSANNE (AFP) - International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach said on Tuesday that a suspension of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) was being maintained.
The IOC suspended India in December last year for flouting the Olympic charter in its election process.
Mr Bach said that if the question of autonomy no longer posed a problem, the proposals made by the IOC on governance have not yet all been accepted by the IOA.
"We maintained the suspension," said Mr Bach after a meeting of the IOC executive board.
