Free higher education to students who bring honor for the country in Sports events: Government
Government will provide free higher education to students from Universities and Colleges who bring recognition for the country at International and National level Sports events. Various guidelines in this regard have been approved and universities concerned will make special efforts in terms of completion of syllabus and attendance of the sports person due to loss of classes. The move is expected to provide relief to sportspersons who need to spend additional hours practicing, and miss classes as a result.
Ministry of HRD also announced launching of a national level university Cricket league and university level Hockey league to promote sports in a big way in the campuses.
