SPORTS LAWS IN INDIA: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS
Journal Title:Cosmos An International Journal of Management
It is a fact that the field of sport statute in India is relatively new and when compared with the other countries, at the beginning of conception. It is however an area of study deserving of in-depth interpretation and academic review and practice. A well-planned systematic competition compliance program can be of great benefit to all businesses. The need for the hour is a fresh perspective, an impartial authority and a general law. Sport disputes are therefore inevitable, so the needs of the sporting community are better met by speedy and cheap forms of arbitration and mediation than by litigation. Sporting disputes require assurance, continuity, equality, fairness and respect for the principles of natural justice that arbitration will bring about. And such qualities can be achieved when all the parties involved in the dispute gain the support. The author observed that sport is such a common interest throughout the world that it encourages the mind-set of having judged the same rules in both spectators and athletes, in order to maintain uniformity throughout and obtain a fair result.
