The Government has asked all recognized National Sports Federations (NSFs) to furnish a copy of their amended by-laws/constitution to the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports immediately for continuation of their recognition by the Government. In a letter sent to all the NSFs, the Ministry has said that in case the constitution/by-laws have not been amended as yet, the concerned NSF is requested to expedite the process and bring the proposal for amendment in the next General Body Meeting.
While furnishing the application for grant of annual recognition for the year 2011, the NSFs had informed that they would amend their by-laws/constitution to incorporate the guidelines issued by Govt. The letter said this may be treated as most immediate and a reply in this regard may be sent by 31-01-2013. The NSFs are also advised that continuation of their recognition by government may be impacted if the already agreed amendments are not carried out.
