Active sportspersons can now apply online on the Sports Department’s portal while corporates, PSUs and individuals can contribute to the NSDFA fund on its new website. Terming the initiative as ‘revolutionary’, Thakur said that it would help in bringing transparency and accountability, besides giving a boost to the government’s ‘Digital India Mission’.

Thakur said, “We will continue to provide facilities to our players but if we can integrate technology with these facilities then it can be very beneficial. ,

He said on the occasion of the launch, “If a player has to get awards and recognition from the government after performing well, then he had to go through the federation or earlier through the Sports Authority of India, after which it would be investigated and this would give the players their dues. It would take about a year or two to get the amount. ,

“We have made the process simpler and more transparent. In simple words, we have used technology for greater transparency and accountability and this will help the players to apply online and get their money in limited time.
