The National Sports Council earns Rs 16.5 lakh a year and the women’s sports body earns a few lakh more a year. Athletics, swimming, kabaddi, handball, volleyball are the five sports that are being organized. Organizing and training other games becomes quite a hassle for the company.

In addition to the often sick athletes, the Prime Minister provides financial assistance to the organizers.
