Fresh polls : SC imposes Rs 50,000 fine on Tamil Nadu Football Association

Fresh polls : SC imposes Rs 50,000 fine on Tamil Nadu Football Association

New Delhi, Feb 12 (UNI) The Supreme Court on Monday imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the officials of Tamil Nadu Football Association (TNFA) who sought fresh polls due to infighting.
A Bench comprising Justice Surya Kant and Justice K V Viswanathan dismissed the plea of the Tamil Nadu Football Association, which had challenged the Madras High Court order that directed the appointment of a committee to look into the affairs of the football body till a new administrative panel is appointed, saying that the plea was 'an abuse of power'.
The Court imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the office bearers of the Tamil Nadu Football Association, including its president Jesiah Villavarayar and directed that the cost be deposited with the Supreme Court Middle Income Group Legal Aid Services.
The matter relates to an appeal filed in the Supreme Court by the Tamil Nadu Football Association and its office bearers against the September 20, 2023 order of the high court, which had constituted an administrative committee of retired judge Justice A K Rajan (Retd) with four other members.
The High Court directed that the administrative committee shall administer the association until the new administrative body is elected and approved by the court.
The Supreme Court bench, while lashing out at the petitioners said, “You are not spending money from your own pocket so you don't know the pain of litigation. You are spending public money. This is all self-promotion and abuse of the process of the law,' the bench observed while dismissing the appeal.
