Sports News :Amendments in Haryana sports policy a disappointment to para-athletes

The new amendments in the Haryana sports policy have raised serious questions over parity between the able-bodied athletes and para-athletes in the state. Para-athletes are immensely disappointed over the new amendments which are recently introduced in Haryana sports policy wherein, the Paralympic medalists and Para Asian Games gold medalists will be given Group B job as compared to Group A jobs offered to Olympics medalists and Asian Games medallists. The amendments also state that the players will be offered jobs in the sports department in various categories and will not be given HCS or HPS jobs like earlier. The new amendments state that Asian Para Games silver medalists will be offered category C jobs, while Asian Games medalists will be offered Group B jobs. Similarly there is no provision of job for national para games winners. Under the amendments, there is also no job for Paralympics and Asian para games participants and no jobs for Commonwealth Para Games bronze medalists while Commonwealth Games bronze medalists are offered Group C jobs. Meanwhile, the Commonwealth Para Games bronze medalists are to be given a stipend of Rs 10,000 monthly.
