Reaching out to the athletes across the nation through social media platform Twitter, Rijiju shared that the ‘Pension to Meritorious Sportspersons’ scheme would cover all medal winners in international events.

As per an official statement floated by the Ministry in this regard, the scheme includes medal winners from international events like Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Asian games, World Cups/World Championships in disciplines identified under Olympic Games or Asian Games, and Paralympic games.
