The Government of Jammu and Kashmir has kept special focus on the sports activities and events in order to give a boost to local talent.
Sports infrastructure is coming up in all the rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir so that the local talent is encouraged to take part in sports activities.

In the last two years, we have formulated and implemented a strategic sports development plan which is paying us the dividend.
