New Delhi [India], February 4 (ANI): Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports said it has asked the National Sports Federations (NSFs) to comply with the provisions of the Sports Code and carry out requisite amendments in their constitutions and bye-laws for bringing them in conformity with the Sports Code provisions.
L.S. Singh, Joint Secretary (Sports) held a virtual meeting with representatives of NSFs on Thursday and reaffirmed to the NSFs that compliance of Sports Code provisions is binding on NSFs and they should not only follow the provisions outlined in the Sports Code in managing their affairs to the extent the Sports Code provisions are applicable, but also take immediate steps for making requisite amendments in their constitutions/bye-laws so that they are in sync with the Sports Code.
"While renewing the recognition of NSFs, the Federations have been given time of six months except in case of five NSFs, who have been given a time period of one year due to the special nature of the five sports, to align their constitutions/bye-laws with Sports Code," the Ministry said in a statement.
Joint Secretary (Sports) stated categorically that the amendments should be carried out without any further delay and within the stipulated timelines. The Ministry said NSFs were also informed that no further extension in the timeline would be possible hereafter. "It was also reiterated that failure to comply with the Sports Code by any NSFs would lead to de-recognition of the NSFs concerned," the statement read.
At the meeting, Joint Secretary (Sports) acknowledged that some NSFs have already amended their constitutions/byelaws, which are being examined in the Ministry.
Representatives of the NSFs, while appreciating the efforts of the Sports Ministry for holding the meeting, informed the Ministry that they have already amended their constitutions in line with the Sports Code and also assured that they will make further amendments if needed, as per the provisions of the Sports Code.
"NSFs have also been asked by the Ministry to furnish the information with regard to compliance of Sports Code provisions on fortnightly basis to the Ministry so that the Delhi High Court is also apprised of the same, as the matter is being monitored by the Delhi High Court," the Ministry said.
