The election would be held for the post of President, seven Vice presidents, one secretary general, five Jong Secretaries and one treasurer, apart from 11 Executive members.

The District and Sessions Judge (retired), HS Sharma has been appointed as the Returning Officer (RO) to hold the elections.

The Kerala Basketball Association will have time till 1 p.m. on June 27, to file its nominations. The complete list of nominations, including the ones received earlier from other associations, would be published on June 29. The last date of withdrawal of candidates will be 3 p.m. on June 30. Final list of candidates will be published on July 1.

The election of the BFI was supposed to be held on February 18, but the results, announced as ‘elected unopposed’ on February 13, were challenged by three petitions. The court noted that “it was alleged that all nomination forms of groups opposite to, or other than, the present incumbent president have been deliberately rejected”.
