Government Releases 20-Point Plan To Win 50 Olympic Medals By 2024

The Let's Play plan features long and short term goals to improve India's medal tally at the Olympics.


New Delhi:  The National Institution for Transforming India or NITI Aayog today announced an action plan named Let's Play - Action Plan for Revitalising Sports in India with the aim to target 50 Olympic medals in the 2024 Summer Olympic Games.

The 20-point plan highlights some key areas that require improvement. These action points have been divided into a short-term vision (4 to 8 years) and a medium- to long-term vision (8 to 15 years), according to its official website. "We are a large and diverse nation. Sports can be a great means of national integration" PM Narendra Modi said on NITI Aayog's website.

The points include targeting a group of priority sports, organisation of sportspersons into three groups for each priority sport, harnessing the potential of indigenous and regional sports, world class coaches and a grading system for coaches.

Special emphasis will be given to implement the National Sports Code and Sports Bill, to formulate an injury insurance scheme, strengthening and scaling-up of existing Sports Authority of India (SAI) training centres and facilitating creation of sports academies for individual sports among others.
