New Delhi, Sep 17 (TIWN) In a relief to the Centre and the Indian Olympic Association (IOA), the Supreme Court on Thursday said the Centre need not seek the consent of Delhi High Court before granting recognition to various sports federations under the National Sports Code.

A bench comprising Justices D.Y. Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and K.M. Joseph was hearing the Sports Ministry's appeal challenging the High Court order, disallowing the authorities concerned from taking a decision on granting recognition to national federations without its consent.  The Centre had argued that there are several federations, and if it were to seek consent from the High Court before granting recognition to any of them, then under these circumstances, the entire process would eventually come to a standstill.
