Setting up of Sports Schools in India
whether the Government has any proposal to establish sports schools in every district in the country?
Though the Government does not have any proposal so far to establish sports schools in every district in the country, on the recommendations of the Olympic Task Force constituted by the Government, one of the priority items to be taken up for achieving excellence in Sports is conversion of 100 existing Navodaya Vidyalayas and 50 other schools into sports schools for training players.
The Ministry is not implementing any Scheme for establishing sports schools in every district in the country. Hence, does not arise.
The above statement given by the Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Col.Rajyavardhan Rathore (Retd.) in Parliament on 8th Feb 2018.
