Sports Ministry restores recognition of Archery Association of India

Youth Affairs and Sports Ministry has restored the government recognition to Archery Association of India as a Nation Sports Federation for promotion and regulation of Archery Sport in the country.

Government recognition of AAI was withdrawn eight years back on account of failure to conduct its elections in accordance with the National Sports Development Code of India. Government recognition of AAI will be valid for one year.

Tribal Affairs Minister and President of Archery Association of India, Arjun Munda welcomed the decision of Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. Terming the move as ‘historic’, Mr Munda said, it heralds the beginning of a new era for Indian Archery.
