MANGALORE: Under the revised National Sports Bill, all National Sports Federations (NSFs) will be treated equally, including cash-rich BCCI, Union Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Sports Ajay Maken said on Friday.

After inaugurating the food court, which was organised as part of the 17th National Youth Festival at the exhibition ground near Mangala Stadium here, the Minister said that all sports federations will be on par to ensure equal importance to all sportspersons.

The revised bill also aims at ensuring transparency and accountability in the functioning of the NSFs by bringing them under the purview of the RTI Act, Maken said.
