From this initiative, sixty one athletes will receive this financial assistance from Hockey India, this includes 30 Junior Women, 26 Junior Men, 4 Senior Women and 1 Senior Men core probable.  

The objective is to provide basic financial relief for the athletes to be able to assist them to again resume sporting activities. 

"The ongoing battle with the Covid-19 pandemic has had an adverse impact on athletes who don’t have jobs, for them to be able to continue sporting activities while their families face financial constraints will be difficult. Hockey India was keen to find a way to give them some immediate relief and has decided to help these players with Rs 10,000 each as financial assistance in these difficult times, which would mean they would not add any additional burden on their families as they look to resume sports activities in the near future.
