Under the scheme, the financial grants will be provided for Research Projects relevant to sports and games, for Publication works/journals of high standard directly linked to sports and games, for attending international seminars, conferences and workshops on sports related matters and holding seminars, conferences, workshops and camps on sports related matters in the country.

The existing 'Scheme relating to Talent Search & Training', which has been revived and renamed as 'Scheme of Human Resources Development in Sports', will be implemented on pilot mode during the 12th Plan period.

The estimated expenditure for the revised scheme during the current plan period will be around Rs 45 crore, which will be met from the total plan outlay of the Department.
