India’s first National Sports University should seek help from corporate houses, Par Panel suggests

For a healthy start, corporate houses should be approached for funding for the proposed National Sports University, the Parliamentary Panel suggested on January 10 while expressing concern over fund availability for the proposed university in Manipur.

“The Committee was concerned about the availability of funds for the University and felt that at any point of time it should not suffer due to resource constraints,” Rajya Sabha secretariat said in a statement.

Suggesting that the proposed sports university should use information technology to provide online courses to students in other parts of the country, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Human Resource Development, headed by Satyanarayan Jatiya, also suggested that corporate sector should be approached for contribution under their corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative requesting for setting up of chairs, fellowships and scholarships in the varsity.

The panel felt that the proposed university would prove to be an umbrella institute at the national level and would synchronise all the sports related activities right from spreading the sports culture throughout the country to producing the medal winning sportspersons at global level.

According to reports, the National Sports University Bill 2017 to set up India’s first full-fledged sports university of international standards was introduced in the Lok Sabha in August last year.

“Setting up of National Sports University in Manipur will result in giving an opportunity for youth of country in general and of North Eastern States in particular for pursuing courses such as BPEd, MPEd, Diploma/certificate courses in coaching, physiotherapy, fitness, sports management, sports journalism, etc,” the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports had said in a statement.

According to sources, INR 100 crore of funds for the sports university in Manipur were allocated in 2014-15 budget by Prime Minister Narendra Modi while he was announcing to set up this university.
