Status: National Education Policy, 2020 emphasizes sports, not just as an extracurricular activity but as a part of the curriculum; it promotes sports-integrated learning and a lifelong fitness attitude. There is a dedicated component of ‘sports and physical education’ under Samagra Shiksha, the integrated scheme for school education. Under it, financial grants are made for sports equipment and performance in Khelo India school competitions. The government also holds Fit India programmes to encourage kids to inculcate physical activity in their daily routines. Additionally, the government has set up a committee for shaping the national sports education board, but no substantial progress has been witnessed as yet. i ii iii
