Under the above mentioned Sports Promotional Schemes, talented sports persons in various age groups (Male and female) are identified and nurtured to excel at National and International level competitions.

Proposals for setting up of SAI Centres are considered on merit basis as and when received. While considering proposals detailed feasibility reports are called for from the concerned region wherein availability of talent pool and infrastructure etc. are examined. Proposals for establishment of following new centres include the following.

·         STC at Uday Pratap Inter College at Varanasi

·         SAG at Dandeli in Athletics (for Siddi tribes)

·         STC at Vidyadharnagar , Jaipur in Athletic, Basketball, Handball and Volleyball

·         Opening of SAG Centre in Kargil, J&K

·         Establishment of SAI SAG Centre at Solal Gaon, North Lakhimpur, Assam

·         Opening of Regional Centre at Wathora, Nagpur

·         Setting up of STC at Nagpur.

He said, to improve the performance of Indian athletes in International events, Government is supplementing the efforts of National Sports Federations (NSFs) by providing financial assistance under the Scheme of Assistance to NSFs for various activities including training of sportspersons, purchase of equipment, national camps, engagement of foreign coaches, holding of International tournaments, etc. All requisite support is provided in the form of food supplements, equipment, foreign exposure, training, etc to the medal prospects for Rio Olympics under Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) of National Sports Development Fund (NSDF).

De-recognization of Sports Bodies 

The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs & Sports, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal has said that 2 National Sports Federations (NSFs) namely Archery Association of India and Indian Amateur Boxing Federation have been derecognized during the last 5 years for non-compliance of the age and tenure guidelines of the National Sports Development Code of India, 2011 and due to de-recognition by the International body respectively.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today the Minister said, for the purpose of funding, Government has placed the sports disciplines in four categories namely “High Priority”, “Priority”, “General” and “Others”. For the 25 sports disciplines falling under “Others” category, no direct funding is done by the Government, now but the NSFs are entitled to avail various concessions of the Government such as railway concessions, tax benefits etc.

National Youth Advisory Council 
The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs & Sports, Shri Sarbananda Sonowal has said that the Department of Youth Affairs had introduced a new Central Sector Scheme, namely, National Young Leaders Programme (NYLP) in December, 2014, which has a provision to setting up of a National Youth Advisory Council (NYAC) to seek active involvement of the youth leaders as well as other stakeholders in the decision-making process on the youth related issues. The NYAC is to be chaired by the Minister in-charge of Youth Affairs, with Secretary, Youth Affairs as the Vice-Chairperson. The members of NYAC are to include Secretaries of major Central Ministries/ Departments dealing with youth related matters, Secretaries in-charge of Youth Affairs of States/ UTs (to be represented by rotation, 6 States/ UTs at a time), Non-Government Organisations (NGOs), Young Leaders (one young leader from each State/ UT), UN Organisations, Chamber of Commerce and Industry; Other concerned Govt. officials, etc. The process of constitution of the National Youth Advisory Committee is going on.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha today the Minister said, neighborhood Youth Parliament (NYP) is a key component of the newly introduced Central Sector Scheme, namely, National Young Leaders Programme (NYLP). Under the Neighbourhood Youth Parliament (NYP) Programme, the platform of youth clubs of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) is being developed in the shape of vibrant ‘neighbourhood youth parliament’ to educate the youth club members about contemporary socio-economic development issues confronting village communities in general and the youth in particular and to involve them in debate/ discussions on such issues. The implementing strategy is that initially Youth Parliament Programmes are organised at Block level for capacity building of Presidents/ Secretaries of Youth Clubs of that Block, after which the Presidents/ Secretaries of Youth Clubs are required to organise similar programmes in youth clubs. The recommendations of these programmes are presented to the local administration/ local bodies for their consideration. NYKS has so far organised 9,570 Youth Parliament Programmes at Block level, in which 7.67 lakh members of NYK-affiliated Youth Clubs participated. The Programmes organised during the first quarter of 2015-16 were effectively leveraged for Yoga Awareness and Training, in addition to other themes, which played a key role in effective participation of NYKS in Yoga programmes across the country on the 21.06.2015, i.e., the International Day of Yoga. In fact, on 21.06.2015, yoga programmes were organised in 68,568 NYKS-affiliated youth clubs, in which 22.42 lakh youth club members participated.
