Department of Personnel and Training,

Sub: "incentive increments to sports persons for outstanding sports achievements, National and International levels.
Ref: Your letter MNo. 6/2/2008 Pay I dated August, 2008.
Kindly refer to the above cited letter.
The practice of giving incentive increments to the sportsperson who excel was to be replaced with lump sum grant. Views were called for by the Department of Personnel from all Ministries/Departments as also individuals. We have felt that there was no need to change the existing system as we found to be a better financial benefit in the longer run. Lumpsum grant however, large it may be will not help the persons who have worked hard in their youthful days. However, we felt that the sportsperson must have a say in the matter.
