The ministry said re-elections should be held in the boxing federation within 15 days, failing with it will be de-recognised. In case of the archery, because of the direction of the Delhi's High Court, it had ordered that government shall not recognize the archery federation if they violates sports code.
Sports minister, Jitendra Singh, said the players will not suffer. “The government is trying its best to resolve the issue. Since the government does not have direct jurisdiction over any NSF, it might take some time to sort out the matter,” he said. The minister wanted the NSF's to change its constitution and incorporate the sports code.
Although funds will be stopped to the archery and boxing federations, special financial assistance for athletes would be routed through the Sports Authority of India (SAI). “We will make a provision so that athletes don't suffer due to fault of the federation,” sports secretary, PK Deb, said.
To accommodate certain key officials, the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) and Basketball Federation of India (BFI) had announced changes in their constitution.
NRAI created a new post of advisor to accommodate its long-standing official, Baljeet Singh Sethi. The BFI created the post of CEO to oblige its late chief, Harish Sharma. His widow, Roopam Sharma, holds that post.
