AIFF Secretary General Kushal Das Resigns from "Health Sector"

All India Football Federation (AIFF) general secretary Kushal Das has resigned on "health grounds", ending a 12-year term that is often marred by allegations of financial mismanagement. Das, who was appointed to the top post in 2010, has been on leave since June 20 due to ill health, although many in the football tournament say he was fired by the Committee of Administrators (COA) after the Auditor-General and Auditor-General. the audit found a number of financial irregularities, which are currently being investigated.

"Kushal Das, General Secretary of the All India Football Federation has resigned due to medical reasons. The All India Football Federation respects his decision, and thanks him for his role and guidance during his tenure. We wish him well and good luck in his future endeavors. , ”Said the AIFF released in the media.

"Sunando Dhar, the Acting Secretary-General, will oversee the day-to-day administration of the Federation," he added.

Das submitted his resignation to the CoA who currently owns Indian football after the Praful Patel-led program was dismissed by the High Court for not holding the election on time.

Das' term as Secretary-General of the AIFF coincides with Patel's presidency.

A recent CAG audit of AIFF accounts for the timing of Patel's time.

Das had previously been accused of sexually abusing a woman working for the AIFF and the center had come under fire after the Internal Complaints Committee, which included his subordinates, gave him a clean name.

The CoA also found out that the star company was paid more than 16 lakh rupees to predict the outcome of the national men's senior team in the AFC Asian Cup qualifiers.

Recently, there has been another complaint where the name of the Ahmedabad football school football school has been the subject of repeated misconduct in other transactions involving former Indian Arrows players.

Das, who before joining the AIFF in 2010, served as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and International Cricket Council (ICC) for two years.

While the Indian national team qualifies for three Asian Cup football tournaments during his tenure, Das has been fortunate over the years to not be able to schedule international quality exposure for the national team.
