Rijiju urges states to identify infra for KISCE

New Delhi, Aug 6 (TIWN) Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju on Wednesday urged states to identify their best sporting infrastructure for the Khelo India State Centre of Excellence (KISCE).

While chairing the first General Council meeting of the Khelo India Scheme, Rijiju addressed officials of state sports departments and other central ministries and said that the centre has already "identified eight states where KISCE will be set up" and "received proposals from 13 states, which are being finalized."  "The KISCE is a great opportunity for states to have a state-of-the-art infrastructure in training senior athletes from all over the country in select sports and excelling in them," said Rijiju at the meeting.  "The Centre is ready to fund and support the states in this, and therefore, I urge every state to urgently identify the infrastructure that they would like to earmark for KISCE."
