The sports ministry has derecognised the Indian Olympic Association, following its decision to make Suresh Kalmadi and Abhay Singh Chautala life presidents.
The IOA suspension will continue until it reverses the appointment of Kalmadi and Chautala.
Scam tainted Suresh Kalmadi and Abhay Singh were elevated to the positions of life presidents by the IOA at its Annual General Meeting in Chennai on Tuesday.
The move had triggered criticism with the sports ministry which even issued a notice to the IOA in a clear show of disapproval.
More deatils awaited
