Pension to Ex-Olympians
This programme was introduced by the Department of Youth Services & Sports to acknowledge gratitude and extend humble assistance to the Ex-Olympians in their old age. Initially the programme was launched by providing token pension to 17 Ex-Olympians. But in the meantime, many of the recipients are no more with us. So, presently, 9 such sports personalities of the yesteryears are getting the pension facilities. The prevailing amount of the pension was Rs.2 (Two) Thousand per month.
