Revamped Khelo India to focus on all round development

Revamped Khelo India to focus on all round development”

Captain of Indian cricket team Virat Kohli on Wednesday hailed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore for the revamp of Khelo India scheme, which was approved by the Union Cabinet on today.

Each athlete to be selected under the scheme will receive an annual scholarship worth Rs 5 lakh for eight consecutive years under the revamped "Khelo India Programme". Sports Minister Rajyawardhan Singh Rathore had then said that as per his idea, soon a plan "Khelo India" would be prepared and put up in the cabinet for discussion and approval. This is a historical moment in the history of Indian sports as the programme aims at professionalizing sport and transforming it into a tool for individual development, along with community, national, and overall economic development. The scheme is effectively going to incorporate a healthy lifestyle in the lives of youngsters.

The attempt would also be to tune the standard of competition at the school and colleges level, and help the interested students gain access to competitive sports.

The programme aims to promote 20 universities across the country as hubs of sporting excellence, which would enable talented sportspersons to pursue the dual pathway of education and competitive sports. "Sports and education will be mixed".

It will also include the use of the National Sports Talent Search portal for talent identification; interactive website for indigenous sports and a Games Information System for locating and using infrastructure.

Asked about the impending Sports Code and efforts to bring sports in the Concurrent list, Rathore said he was taking a "step by step" approach.
