In continuation to its earlier communications on the subject, the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports has given last opportunity to 8 National Sports Federations (NSFs) to hold AGM Special General Body Meeting to incorporate the Guidelines of Sports Code on Age and Tenure guidelines in their constitution. The NSFs are: Deaf, Fencing, Handball, Jump Rope, Karate-Do, Wrestling, Wushu and Yachting.
The Ministry in a letter addressed to 8 NSFs has asked them to submit the required documents by 31st December, 2013. The letter said failure to submit the required documents incorporating the guidelines will lead to non-renewal of recognition for 2014 and stoppage of grants to the concerned NSF.
Out Of 53 NSFs only 8 have not yet submitted the revised by-laws/ constitution incorporating the aforesaid guidelines.
