Taking notice of unrecognized sports associations approaching for screening of teams, the Jammu and Kashmir Sports Council have ordered that only those contingents, who get green signal from the authorised screening committee are eligible to participate in the national level competitions.


As per the order number SC/4058/316-21, Dated:- 06-07-2023 by the Secretary J&K Sports Council, Nuzhat Gul read that it is obligatory upon the Sports Associations recognized by the J&K Sports Council to get the selected teams or contingent screened through the Screening Committee of the J&K Sports Council before participation in the National level competitions.


“However, it has been observed that a number of unrecognized sports associations are also approaching for screening of teams to get nod for participation in National Level Competition and avail benefits of the National level representations as per the privileges available from the Government,” the official order read.


It further stated that it has also been observed that these unrecognized Sports Associations are running from a particular area and holding posts in the Associations amongst the restricted persons or Government employees without proper authority or permission.


“Moreover, it has been also learnt that these unrecognized Sports Associations are not registered under Societies Act-1860 and have no district units, thus running illegally in the UT of J&K without following the guidelines of the J&K Sports Council for grant of recognition,” the order further read.


It also stated that there are also reports that these Sports Associations are not maintaining proper records or fixtures of the domestic competitions leaving apprehension of issuing Sports Certificates to non-genuine candidates.


“It is therefore impressed upon the Divisional Sports Officers and Screening Committee of J&K Sports Council that henceforth no screening of teams fielded by unrecognized Sports Association are conducted relating to their participation in National Level Competitions till they are formally registered under “Societies Act — 1860 and recognized by the J&K Sports Council in accordance with the laid down guidelines,” the order read.
