Taking serious view of the fact that Sports Authority of India is languishing due to non-availability of Officers and Coaches to man it’s more than 80 Centres spread all over India including North Eastern Region and Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Sports Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has asked the Secretary, Sports who is holding the charge of Director General, Sports Authority of India to expedite restructuring of cadre of Sports Authority of India so as to create atleast nine Regional Centres in the Country and to effectively manage the SAI Centres especially in North Eastern Region and bigger states like Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh etc.
