Indias First Sports University To Come Up In National Capital Soon

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced that a “Sports University” will soon be established in Mundka, New Delhi.

Kejriwal while speaking at a press conference on October 3 said a bill in this regard was approved by the cabinet and would be sent to Lieutenant Governor (LG) Anil Baijal for approval. After that, the bill would be tabled in the Assembly.

The chief minister said that the Sports University would be made on a 90 acre land in the Mundka area. According to the Aam Aadmi Party government in the national capital, the Delhi Sports University (DSU) Bill grants the university the right to establish constituent schools and colleges. The main objective of the university would be to groom the students who would excel in various sports in school, the government said.

Earlier, the chief minister had said that a sportsperson used to be uncertain about his future if he was not able to establish a career in sports. Such a person would often be called just a school pass out.

Sports Curriculum

A player will be able to pursue graduation, post-graduation and doctorate degrees will be in the various sports subjects. Giving an example, Kejriwal said a sportsperson could also appear in the civil services examination because he would be considered a graduate after getting the degree from the sports university.

Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia, also present at the press conference said most of the students had to compromise when it came to sports to keep up with their performance in the main subjects.

“Some of the students I know are pursuing their graduation from SOL (School of Open Learning) to manage sports and studies both. The share of jobs under the sports quota is also limited,” he said.

“We are hoping to eradicate that uncertainty from the minds of sportspersons,” he said. The vice-chancellor of the university would be an experienced sportsperson, he added.

Kejriwal said the curriculum of the university and the subjects were in the process of ideation and would be developed following further discussions with experts. Several experts would be involved at various stages to design and give a definite structure to the curriculum of the courses, he added.

He said the DSU Bill defined the administrative and legal structure of the university.
