Special Cash Awards to Medal Winning Sportspersons and their coaches



Proposals for Special Cash Awards to Medal Winning Sportspersons and their coaches in international sports events


In order to ensure that there is no delay in recommendations, the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has asked all the National Sports Federations (NSFs) to send the recommendations for Cash Awards to Sportspersons and their coaches in respect of medals won a calendar year (ending on 31st December) to the Ministry by 31st March of the next year. The issue of late submission of cases of cash awards to medal winning sportspersons and their coaches by some NSFs had been drawing the attention of the Ministry for quite some time.

In a communication sent to Indian Olympic Association, Paralympic Committee of India and all National Sports Federations, the Ministry said, any delay in submission of recommendations will be adversely viewed during evaluation of NSFs` performance. The application for cash award may also be submitted directly by the medal winning sportsperson and his/her coach/coaches to the concerned National Sports Federation with a copy to the Ministry and Sports Authority of India. If the ministry does not receive recommendations/ application within this period, the claim for cash award for the sportspersons and coaches may get forfeited. It has also been decided that it will be mandatory for all the National Sports Federations to get the requisite proforma signed by the sportsperson about the name(s) of their coach(es) who has/have trained the sportsperson(s) before they proceed to take part in an international event. If no proforma is signed and submitted, the ministry may withdraw the permission for defaulting players` participation in the respective event. Also, if the name of a coach does not figure in the proforma, he/she may not be considered for cash award subsequently. The recommendations/applications may be sent to the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports with a copy to Sports Authority of India (SAI).
