The Cabinet approved the Department of Education’s proposal to allow 77 playgrounds of government schools which are run in single shifts, for outdoor sports activities for the students and youth of respective areas.
The playgrounds will be allowed for use to entities like sports associations and clubs, strictly for organising sporting events. Individuals interested in athletics can also use these premises so also can those interested in training and coaching students.
The permission for using these playgrounds will be given by the concerned District Deputy Director of Education on a written proposal forwarded by concerned Heads of Schools.
The Department of Education has pointed out that students and youth of Delhi do not have enough open spaces for participating in sporting activities.
