In his address at the ASSOCHAM conference, C K Mahajan (Retired Chief Justice), chairman, National Sports Code Committee informed that Sports Development Code 2016 was on the anvil. “I am in the process of preparing Sports Development Code 2016 by holding discussions and seeking guidance from former sportsmen, sports journalists and together with relevant stakeholders in the sector,” said Mahajan. “We are still in the process of finalising that report,” he said without giving a specific timeline. Lamenting on poor financial condition of various national sportsmen, Mahajan said that government needs to play a very decisive and co-operative role in development of sports in India.
