The primary objective of the event was to identify talent within the existing pool of resources and facilitating skill upgrades for optimal performance. District-wise grading of physical instructors and sports officials was a key focus of the initiative.
Director of the Youth Affairs and Sports department Satya Brata Nath insisted that instructors as well as officials engaged in the field of sports must have a better understanding of the updates in their relevant spheres.
