Under this scheme, sportspersons below 20 years of age and who have won gold medals at the national level are inducted. With the objective of producing champions out of the talented sportspersons, they are extended financial support by the Government.

Further, they are given financial assistance for a maximum of Rs.2.00 lakh per annum for purchase of food supplements, sports kits, sports equipments, to undergo training abroad and to participate in competitions abroad on need basis. The participants are eligible to get the cost of their air travel when participating in the international competitions.
