With the aim of promoting hockey across the world, Hockey India (HI) took a strategic decision Saturday to provide aid to Afghanistan Hockey Federation.


The decision was taken in the 22nd board meeting of Hockey India held at Holiday Inn Hotel here Saturday.

Afghanistan Hockey Federation had requested for aid in a communique received early this month. HI board has agreed to send Hockey sticks, balls and goalkeeper pads to them.

Speaking on the contribution, HI secretary general Narinder Batra said, "Hockey India is committed to the grassroot development of the sport. This is a small contribution to promote hockey among enthusiasts in Afghanistan."

In another initiative, HI increased the annual grant of State Unit members from Rs.6 lakh to Rs.8 lakh. In addition, associate member (non-institutional) will get Rs.3 lakh and other members will get Rs.2 lakh per annum.
