The fund was sanctioned by the Union Sports Ministry under the 'Khelo India' scheme.
The central grant of Rs 14.30 crore will be used to provide soft support in terms of coaches, equipment, consumables, technical support, organising competitions, including boarding and lodging facilities, and travelling expenses for participants among others.
Sports competitions will be organised depending on the popularity of a game in a particular district.
A district-level committee chaired by the deputy commissioner will implement this scheme.
