It is a new scheme. It has just been passed by the Andhra Pradesh state cabinet. Thus, the CM has not yet mentioned any other details of this incentive scheme. The state government will require some time before it is ready to officially roll out this project. So, nothing has been mentioned about the registration dates and procedure. It is expected that the state government will launch a new portal for the scheme. Through this website, interested applicants will be able to apply for the incentive. In case of offline registration, candidates may get in touch with the respective association or Sports Ministry. The state government has allocated a huge sum for the implementation of this scheme. Nothing has been announced regarding these matters. Once the state ministers announce these details, you will get it on our portal.

Sports stars often do not get the much-needed support from the government, and thus, fail to make the country proud on international gaming platforms. This financial incentive is a boost to the young sports start’s confidence. It states that the state government is with them. The money will help the athletes from poor families to purchase necessary training gears. Additionally, it will give them the push to work hard and represent India on international sports events.
