Govt approved Rs. two lakh for Arjuna Award winner V. Tejaswini Bai recovering from COVID-19 infection

Union Government has approved an amount of Rs. two lakh for Arjuna Award winner V. Tejaswini Bai.

Tejaswini and her husband contracted COVID-19 early this month.

She has a little cough, but is on the path of recovery at home while her husband Naveen succumbed to the virus.

The financial assistance has been approved from the Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay National Welfare Fund for the Sportspersons, under the ongoing jointly collaborated initiative from the Sports Authority of India, Indian Olympic Association and the Sports Ministry to support ex-international athletes and coaches amid ongoing COVID-19.

Tejaswini won the Arjuna Award in 2011 and was a member of the Women’s Kabaddi team that won gold medals at the 2010 and 2014 Asian Games.
