Providing equal opportunities to all people in the state to participate in sports and channelize the sport as a vehicle to achieve the minimum physical fitness.

The purpose of sports and physical education programs are considered as the means of achieving the medals in the national and international tournaments. But the basic purpose of the sports is to develop a healthy society. Government spends huge amounts for the health. But the efforts of government to improve the sports in the society can improve the overall fitness levels of the people, thereby reduce the government exchequer on health. Government can consider physical education and sports as socializing activity besides its influence in developing the health of the society. All the local bodies can be encouraged to promote sports club culture. State government can create more public fitness centers to promote sports culture.
