The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) on November 25, 2019, has introduced the Sports and Physical Education for encouragement of Sports, Physical activities, Yoga, Co-curricular activities etc. under the Samagra Shiksha scheme.

Since the health and physical education is a compulsory subject from Class I to X, National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) are taking measures to promote physical education. The Draft National Education Policy (NEP) has stated that all students at all levels of school will have regular periods and opportunities to participate in physical activity and exercise, including sports, games, yoga, martial arts, dance, gardening, and more, in accordance with local availability of teachers and facilities.
