In an all new development in Indian hockey,  Mrs. Vidya Stokes has resigned as President of Hockey India with immediate effect.

This is as per her commitment made to the Union Sports Minister at the inauguration of the High Altitude Synthetic Pitch at Shilaroo, Himachal Pradesh, in February this year. Mrs. Stokes had said then that she would step down as President only after the Commonwealth Games as India was the host for these prestigious Games.

She has tendered her resignation to the Secretary General and given him the additional charge to discharge all duties as President as an interim measure till necessary arrangements are made by the Hockey India Executive Board and ratified by the General Council.

Mrs. Vidya Stokes thanked all members and colleagues at Hockey India for extending their support to her as the President.
