Taking note of the “indigent circumstances” in which former athlete Santhi Soundarajan has been living, the sports ministry today sanctioned an assistance of Rs 60,500 to fund her NIS Diploma Course at the SAI Centre in Bengalore.

“Minister of state (independent charge) for youth Affairs & sports Shri Jitendra Singh has approved financial assistance of Rs 60,500 from the National Welfare Fund for Sportspersons, to Ms. Santhi Soundarajan, former athlete, who had won a silver medal in Asian Games 2006 at Doha, which was later withdrawn, as she was not found eligible to compete in female category because of female hyperandrogenism,” the Sports Ministry said in a statement.
