Delhi government plans Rs 3 lakh assistance for budding sports talents

New Delhi, Dec 5 (IANS): The Delhi government's Department of Education (DoE) has prepared a plan to extend financial assistance of up to Rs 3 lakh and specialised training to sporting talents in city schools, an official statement said on Monday.

The financial assistance will be available to Delhi school students who are bonafide residents of Delhi for the last three years.

The policy was presented before Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who is also the Education Minister, at the Delhi Secretariat here on Monday.

"Under the policy, an annual financial support of Rs 2 lakh per annum will be provided to school students up to the age of 14 years, while those above this age would get Rs 3 lakh per annum as support," the statement said.

A Committee of Experts of at least five members with sports background with impeccable integrity and credentials would be constituted for the implementation of the policy, and it would then decide the students to be selected for support under the policy.

"The financial assistance would be provided to each talent initially for two years and then a performance review would be taken to take a call on the continuance of the assistance," the statement said.

The policy also covers the creation of 'Centres of Excellence' throughout Delhi for specialised assistance with coaches, physiotherapists, and nutritionists.

The policy will soon be sent for a cabinet nod.
