    [/b]ONGC, AI, HAL face AFC chop, out of I-League next season

    New Delhi: The All India Football Federation (AIFF) is all set to exclude three I-League clubs — Air India, ONGC and HAL — from top tier of the country’s premier club tournament since they have failed to adhere to the club licensing criteria set by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).
    The three public sector undertakings have failed to declare themselves as commercial entities, which will lead to their departure from the I-League in the 2011-12 season.
    The Indian pro-league adhoc committee, formed under the chairmanship of AFC president Mohammad Bin Hammam — met in New Delhi on Wednesday and was learnt to have taken strong exception to their inability to toe the club licensing rules. The clubs won’t be eligible to play in the second division I- League as well.
    All I-League clubs were given a December 31, 2010 deadline to fulfil the criteria and submit all the required documents to the AFC. The ad-hoc committee will deliberate further on the eligibility of the I-League as a fully professional league on Thursday.
    “After several deadlines, these three clubs couldn’t convert themselves as commercial entities to fulfil the AFC criteria. The licenses are renewed annually. The clubs can still be a part of the second division if they fulfil the licensing criteria by the year-end,” an AIFF official said.
    The official further pointed out three clubs should take a cue from Bharat Earth Movers Limited, which, despite being a PSU, declared itself a commercial entity in the second division

    There is still confusion regarding this, just now there are reports doing rounds that all these teams HAL, AI & ONGC are still eligible to play i league next season provided they are not relegated. (Somebody please give the correct picture).

    AIFF has given one year grace period to all the i league div 1 teams to meet the AFC criteria at the same time they are saying that div 2 toppers who does not meet the AFC criteria will not be promoted. Why these restrictions? Can somebody explain?

    Good point...but probably the grace period is more deserved by the PSU's for their contribution in Indian football for years
