He (Gavaskar) will serve as the BCCI head for the duration of IPL 7 only. 

The court also allowed the two teams, Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals to play during IPL season 7 and the IPL matches will go on as per schedule. There is no blanket ban on these teams in spite of being mired in corruption charges.
