Ensure proper rental yields for SATS properties: Minister

Srinivas Goud holds review meeting with sports officials

Telangana Minister for Sports and Tourism V. Srinivas Goud appealed to officials to ensure that the buildings and spaces which are leased out/given on rent to various establishments should be as per current market rates.

The Minister, who reviewed various subjects related to sports and infrastructure with the senior officials of the Sports Authority of Telangana State (SATS) here at L.B. Stadium here on Wednesday, also suggested to digitalise all the properties of SATS to ensure that they have the desired protection from the government side.

Among those who attended the meeting included SATS VC and MD A. Dinakar Babu.

Mr. Goud directed the officials to submit all relevant details regarding the pending legal disputes with regard to non-payment of rentals from those continuing to stay on the government properties under the aegis of SATS. “This should help us in settling many pending issues,” he added.

The Minister reiterated that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is determined to provide the much needed impetus to create sports infrastructure in the State and asked the officials to follow up on the funds that are due from the Centre, with a proper action plan. “It is also important to create new sports infrastructure with private partnership,” he said while reminding that since 2014 when TRS came to power, 45 new stadia were constructed in the State.

Mr. Goud also felt it was imperative for officials to educate the sports fraternity on Government Orders with regard to implementing the 2 per cent quota for athletes in government jobs and the amendments made to sports quota recruitment in professional courses like medicine and engineering.

He said detailed proposals should be formulated to avail maximum benefits for schools under the Centre’s Khelo India initiative.
