The aim of phase three of the joint venture was to provide 17 coaches and 30 referees from across India with the knowledge and skills to run their own training courses within their communities, the release said.
The participants were from seven states across India, including four coaches from host state Maharashtra.
"Most of the referees who attended previous Premier Skills courses are now performing at a national level. The impact I witness is their psychologically positive approach to the game of football", he said.
"The course will help them understand the different aspects of refereeing in addition to the qualities they need to develop into a more complete official," he added.
