GUWAHATI: Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports (independent charge) Kiren Rijiju on Tuesday, October 29, said the CBSE was preparing a system to ensure sports becomes a substantial part of education to determine the achievement of a student.

According to a report by the Hindustan Times, Rijiju said “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already announced setting up a Board for Sports Education. Now, under the new education policy, sports will become a part of education and the CBSE is preparing a system to ensure sports becomes a substantial part of education.” 

His statement came after inaugurating the Dr N P V Ramaswamy Udayar Hockey Centre at Sri Ramachandra Medical College and University in Chennai.

He added that, “Earlier, sports was treated as extra-curricular activities. Sports was not part of education system and it was treated as an extra.”
