Recognition to National Sports Federations

The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs & Sports Shri Jitendra Singh has said that Government has granted annual recognition for the year 2013 to 53 National Sports Federations (NSFs) which have complied with the provisions of the guidelines incorporated in the National Sports Development Code of India (NSDCI), 2011. 

Archery Association of India has been de-recognized since it refused to accept the Government guidelines. 

Also, the recognition of Indian Amateur Boxing Federation has been suspended keeping in view the alleged irregularities in the elections.

 In addition, a few other NSFs such as Gymnastic Federation of India, Korfball Federation of India etc. have also been found to have violated Government guidelines during the last 3 years. Recognition to such NSFs has not been accorded.
