The petition requested that National Sports Federations only be recognised after adhering to the 2011 National Sports Code.On June 3 of last year, a coordinating bench issued a directive to the Center directing it to ensure that financing, assistance, and other facilities for National Sports Federations only resume when they comply with the National Sports Code and various legal judgements.
According to NRAI, which requested that the judgement be annulled or changed in its applicability, the injunction has made it difficult for the National Sports Federations to do their regular business.
