Karnataka Sports Policy


Recognizing the potential of youth of Karnataka in sports, KJA initiated the process for evolving a Karnataka Sports Policy. KJA has constituted a KJA Task Group of eminent experts, Co-Chaired by Mr. Prakash Padukone; Mr. Rahul Dravid and Principal Secretary, DYES, GOK, in November, 2014. The main aim of the Task Group is to develop a holistic and all–encompassing Sports Policy for Karnataka that not just defines a vision for sports development in Karnataka but also prepares a roadmap of further actions. The Policy aims for a holistic development of sports – a vision that can set Karnataka apart as a futuristic "Sports Destination". The Sports Policy Task group has started its work and is planning consultation workshops in different places in Karnataka and assessment of sports facilities and status in Karnataka. The Sport Policy will be prepared in 6 months and submitted by KJA to GOK.
