Sports Schemes

The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports Shri Sarbananda Sonowal has said that there is no proposal to introduce schemes exclusively for Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and Below Poverty Line sportspersons as all Schemes of the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports and autonomous organizations under its control viz., Sports Authority of India (SAI), Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education (LNIPE), are inclusive schemes and are equally applicable to sportspersons belonging to marginalized and weaker sections of society such as scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, economically backward classes, etc.


In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today Shri Sonowal said, under Special Area Games (SAG) Scheme of the Sports Authority of India, talented and meritorious sportspersons from tribal, rural, coastal and hilly areas of the country are identified and trained at SAG centres set up across the country. There is no proposal in the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports to set up Sports University in Jharkhand. It has been decided to set up a Sports University in Manipur.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today Shri Sonowal said, accordingly, the Government has formulated a draft legislation named “The Prevention of Sports Frauds Bill, 2015”.
