As XtraTime reports, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the sports ministry to recall the order granting provisional renewal of recognition till September 30 to 54 NSFs (National Sports Bodies).
This is a yearly ritual, which makes the NSFs eligible for government grants and assistance for training and competition.
Because of the pandemic, most of the NSFs could not complete the formalities this year. The court also asked the ministry to maintain status quo on granting recognition to three suspended federations — Indian Golf Union, School Games Federations of India and Rowing Federation of India.
Amongst the suspended NSFs is the All India Football Federation (AIFF) and their general secretary Kushal Das feels that it is procedural and would be sorted out soon.
