Along with the entry form, players will be provided a set of SOPs, which are strictly to be followed,” Mahajan added.
“The association has decided to conduct state championships for the remaining categories for the benefit of players. Winners and participants on the basis of their performance in this state championship will get advantage while taking admission to various colleges and universities. Position holders will also be eligible for scholarships and gradation certificates from the UT Sports Department,” said Mahajan.
