Lok Sabha passes bill for National Sports University in Manipur, to offer 13 courses through 4 schools

The Lok Sabha had passed the bill for the National Sports University in Manipur yesterday. According to reports, the bill, which was sought to replace an ordinance promulgated by the NDA government was passed by a voice vote.

Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore later shared that the University will offer 13 courses through its 4 schools. He assured the parliament that the vice chancellor of the university will be a sportsperson and the academic council will have sportspersons as members. The four schools are as follows,

  1. School of Sports Education
  2. School of Interdisciplinary Studies
  3. School of Sports Management and Technology
  4. School of Sports Science and Sports Medicine

The government of India has reportedly signed an agreement with two Australian Universities namely the University of Canberra and Victoria University to develop the curriculum, laboratories and research facilities.

He added that the University will also focus on sports coaching, physiology, nutrition and sports journalism. According to reports, Rajyavardhan Rathore informed the parliament that though the legislation was introduced in the Rajya Sabha in August 2017, it could not be passed.

The NDA government had promulgated an ordinance on May 31, 2018, that had allowed the government to establish a national sports university in Manipur. Yesterday in Parliament NK Premachandran of RSP had asked why an ordinance was necessary on such a routine legislation. To which Rajyavardhan Rathore had replied that since the bill could not be passed last year. He reportedly added that since the university was already functional, and the Budget session became a washout, the ordinance route was taken to safeguard the future of the enrolled students.

President Kovind had approved the ordinance as the formal bill could not be passed due to opposition’s legislative blockade in the parliament.
