The Budget Split

The combined budget for SAI, NSF, and incentives for athletes would be Rs 1,172 crore, or about 34.5% of the overall sports budget and 0.075% of India’s projected 2023–24 national budget.

The government’s many programs that are not directly tied to the senior athletes who may represent the country at the next Asian Games in 2023 and the Paris Olympics in 2024 make up the remaining 65% of the budget.

Khelo India National Program

The Khelo India-National Program for Development of Sports has been given a budget of Rs 1,045 crore. 15 crore rupees have been up for the improvement of sporting facilities in Jammu and Kashmir. Unexpectedly, Rs 30 crore has been set aside for the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Given that the games were held in India more than 12 years ago and that the government is still paying for them, this is highly intriguing.

The government’s main initiative, Khelo India, which will get Rs 1000 cr, aims to increase young enthusiasm for Olympic sports. The Khelo India program consists of two all-India multi-day, multi-disciplinary competitions: the Khelo India University Games and the Khelo India Youth Games.

The increase in financing for the National Sports Federations and the Sports Authority of India (SAI) is the largest benefit for athletes. The NSFs’ money has increased from Rs 280 crore to Rs 325 crore, while SAI has got an increase of Rs 132 crore from the Budget Estimates of Rs 653 crore in 2022–23 to Rs 785 crore in 2023–24.

These are the two organizations that have a direct hand in the education and promotion of the athletes that represent the nation abroad. Under SAI, world-class facilities are made available to selected athletes, even those who compete outside of India, through the Olympic Podium Scheme and the National Center of Excellence in Sports. On the other side, all NSFs plan trips for their players to take part in different activities.
