India’s sport sector is growing at an explosive rate. While cricket remains the giant of the sector, sports such as kabaddi, table tennis, hockey, shooting, and football have demonstrated that India is not simply a one-sport country. Despite the growth in the sector, there continues to be concerns about Indian sport governance across four themes: roles and responsibilities, professionalisation, management and governance, and transparency and accountability. This policy brief recommends that Indian policy-makers can improve sport governance by:

  • Defining the roles and responsibilities of the different actors in the Indian sport sector
  • Supporting the professionalisation of the administration of Indian sport organisations
  • Developing educational resources to help differentiate governance and management
  • Enforcing requirements for transparency and accountability
