Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs is going to establish Khelo India State Centres of Excellence (KISCE) under its flagship Khelo India Scheme.
- One KISCE will be identified in each state and union territory, with an effort to create a robust sporting ecosystem in the entire country.
- In first phase, ministry has identified state-owned sports facilities in eight states which will be upgraded into Khelo India State Centre of Excellence (KISCE).
- In order to upgrade the existing centre to the KISCE, the central government will extend a ‘Viability Gap Funding’ in sports science and technology support for sports disciplines practiced at the centre and also bridge the gaps in requirement of sports equipment, expert coaches and high performance managers.
- The state and UT will run the centre and build capacity to turn it into the world-class sporting facility, and will be responsible for all aspects of management of the centre including, boarding, lodging and maintenance, while funds for critical gaps such as expert coaches, support staff, equipment, infrastructure will be extended through the Khelo India Scheme.
