HFI, IOA members talk to PS as Sports Ministry set to take ‘strict action’ against NSFs

The Sports Ministry said it will send just two more reminders to those National Sports Federations, who have not yet amended their Constitutions to fall in line with the National Sports Code, before taking “stern action” against them in September. The ministry has granted recognition to 47 NSFs, including provisional recognition to a few, since the Birmingham Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games in Hangzhou are lined up later this year. Sports Minister Anurag Thakur said the decision to grant recognition to big federations was taken keeping in mind the interest of athletes. Handball, Taekwondo, Volleyball and Karate federations' recognition has been put on hold while the Equestrian Federation of India (EFI) and Indian Golf Union (IGU) have been given provisional recognition and told to follow Sports Code within six months, or lose the NSF status.
