Instruction for curbing the tendency amongst sportspersons for giving preference to playing in prize money tournaments rather in tournaments where India participate for medals rather than cash awards.
Letter no 14-118/2013-SP-IV dated 18th July 2013 received from Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports is put up for your information and strict compliance of the instructions as laid down in the said letter.
If any shooter take part in a competition of prize money or some other private competition not recognized by HSRA or not cunducted by the NRAI must take prior permission from HSRA failing which he/she will be debarred from shooting for a period which may extend upto to 5 years.
It has been learnt from media that a competition on the name of Open National Championship in shooting is being conducted in the Devi Lal Stadium Sonepat by some unathorised people .
This is highly objectionable, there can not be an Open National Championship in Shooting without the approval and supervision of the NRAI .
Strict action will be taken against all such responsible persons as it is an act of indiscipline and cheating .
