The Haryana Cabinet, which met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, today unveiled a bonanza for outstanding sportspersons by creating a special cadre for them in government jobs.

With the introduction of Haryana Outstanding Sportspersons (Group A, B amp; C) Service Rules-2021, a separate cadre would be created to promote sports in the state.

Under the new rules, 50 Group-A posts (deputy director), 250 Group-B posts (senior coach and coach) and 250 Group-C posts (junior coach) have been sanctioned.

The upper age limit has also reduced from 50 to 42 years. Some new tournaments have also been covered under the new rules such as South Asian Games, National Games and Ranji Trophy etc.

Outstanding sportspersons will be eligible to apply for the post within 10 years of their sports achievement or up to the age of 42.

A provision has been made for granting monthly stipend to the outstanding sportspersons on the basis of their achievements in sports tournaments of international level, especially Para Olympics, Asian Para Games, Commonwealth Para Games, World University Games and South Asian Games.

To encourage sportspersons, especially those who are not economically well off but have qualified for participation in Olympics, the state government has decided to grant them Rs 5 lakh for better diet, training and capacity building.
