The Mizoram Cabinet has granted “industry” status to “sports”. This step has been taken to invest more in sports in order to generate employment and increase value. Granting industry status to sports is expected to help the state in meeting the requirements of sportspersons and others involved in the sector.
Giving the industry status to sports would also ensure sustainability, proper registration as well as management of sports. With this move, the sports and its infrastructure will be eligible to avail the facility of subsidy, loan and assistance from the private and government sources.
