Services of National Institute of Sports (NIS)

The Sports Authority of India has discontinued the practice of making available the services of trained trainers of the National Institute of Sports (NIS) for Central as well as State Schemes. Earlier, Coaches were provided by Sports Authority of India (SAI) to the State Governments/UT Administrations for State/District Coaching Centres under State Schemes of concerned States on demand. This was stated by Shri Ajay Maken, Minister of State (I/C) for Youth Affairs & Sports, in the Lok Sabha today, in a written reply to a question by Shri Deoraj Singh Patel, Shri Virendra Kumar & Smt. Yashodhara Raje Scindia.

The Minister further stated that for the last 2-3 years, SAI is facing acute shortage of Coaches due to retirement of coaches in different sports disciplines under its various sports promotional schemes. Enough coaches are thus not available for posting outside SAI Schemes/establishments, the Minister added.
