Upper ceiling norms of boarding & lodging for athletes and team officials increased by 66%

Sports Ministry has revised the upper ceiling amount of boarding and lodging for Indian Athletes and team officials by 66 per cent. This is for the athletes and officials participating in international competitions, under the Ministry’s Scheme of Assistance to National Sports Federations. As per the revised norm, athletes and support staff travelling for approved competitions abroad (foreign exposures) will now be entitled to 250 dollars per day from an earlier norm of 150 dollars per day. The previous norms for boarding and lodging were fixed way back in November 2015.

 With the increase in the ceiling for boarding and lodging, the  National Sports Federations will be able to arrange reasonably better accommodations for athletes when competing and representing the country at various International Competitions.
