Mumbai:An extraordinary general body meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is expected to be convened in early September to consider changes in its constitution ahead of the annual general meeting (AGM) in late September.

"The bye-laws of the Board's constitution have to be suitably amended to give affiliation to new states carved out due to bifurcation of states like Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh," a top BCCI source said in Mumbai on Wednesday.

"The matter of making amendments to the bye-laws was discussed at the last working committee of the Board (in Delhi). Some suggestions have been made about changing the bye-laws for granting affiliation to Jharkhand, Chattisgarh etc," the source said.

The source, however, said thus far there has been no discussion on giving chief Jagmohan Dalmiya a special status within the body once he completes his term as BCCI president this September.

Media reports from Kolkata in the past have indicated that Dalmiya would be given special status to represent the BCCI at all International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings in order to utilise his special skills and past experience in dealing with the world governing body.

"The matter has so far not been discussed at the working committee," the source said.

The source added that the working committee is to meet in the middle of next month to finalise the accounts and annual reports of the BCCI before the AGM.
