29 per cent hike in sports allocation
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, April 4
Emphasising the Delhi government’s commitment to improving the sports facilities in the Capital and provide an opportunity to the youth to develop their skills in various fields, the state finance minister, Mr Mahinder Singh Saathi today announced Rs 338.30 crore allocation for the sports sector.

This fiscal budgetary allocation is 29 per cent higher than the allocation to this sector in 2001-02.

In an attempt to provide comprehensive development of this sector, Mr Saathi said the government is planning to formulate a sports policy and establish state level sports academy for the comprehensive development of sports infrastructure and promotion of sports activities in Delhi.

Most of the sporting facilities were established in 1982 at the Asian Games. Several sports infrastructural facilities, over the years due to lack of funds and low allocation of funds, were in a bad shape.

Stating that the government attaches highest priority to the promotion of sports in the National Capital Territory, he said the directorate of education, which is providing sports and coaching facilities to school students, would benefit a lot by the government’s proposed move.

The need for higher allocation for the sport sector has been one of the long pending demands of those associated with this field. With increased allocation, they expressed the optimism that the sporting talent in the Capital would be better tapped and nurtured. Better infrastructure facilities would help the state to organise several national and international events, which would provide encouragement to the youngsters, they added.
