NEW DELHI: The Indian menâ€™s hockey team is languishing at the bottom after finishing sixth in the recent Commonwealth Games and last in the Champions Trophy in December, 2005.
However, the government is hoping to give the game a boost by creating state-of-the-art infrastructure.
The Sports Authority of India (SAI) will create eight new artificial turfs around the country at a cost of Rs 20-22 cr. Some of the centres that will benefit are Mumbaiâ€™s Kandivali centre, Coorg, Gandhinagar, Patiala, Kolkata and Rourkela.
SAI also confirmed that the National Stadium in New Delhi will also get floodlight
The demand has been long standing,this is just one of the announcements by the Govt again.God only knows when.
