The Committee of Administrators (CoA) cleared Rahul Dravid of having any conflict of interest and gave a green signal to his appointment as the Head of Cricket at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. 

Lt. General Ravi Thogde, a member of the CoA, stated that the ball is now in the BCCI's court. 

“There is no conflict on Rahul’s case. He has got a notice and we have cleared his appointment. We had seen no conflict, but if the Ombudsman finds any conflict, we will give our response to the Ombudsman stating why we found no conflict,” Thogde said after a CoA meeting here.
“After that he (Ombudsman) has to consider. It’s a process and it will continue.”
