A bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud appointed the committee of administrators for the All India football federation, which will be headed by a former judge of the Supreme Court.
The apex court also said that the proposed constitution shall be circulated and suggestions/objections, if any, to be placed before the committee of administrators by June 30.
