Maharashtra State Government has implemented an Incentive Policy a few years ago to promote and encourage Students to take up Sports ~ 25 Additional Marks are given to each Student who has played for the State in some Sport ~ While the Intent is to be applauded,the misuse has simply stunned all !
And this has resulted in many getting 100% taking advantage of the Sports Incentive Marks ! ~ This year 21171 Students applied for this additional 25 Marks ~ some for even playing ‘Tug of War’ for the State ! ~ Most completely undeserving and will never Pursue the Sport again
For such widespread blatant misuse,the State Government will be discontinuing with this Incentive Policy from next year ~ will apply the incentive only if Grace marks are required to pass by Students who have played some Sport for the State
Methinks,instead the State must work out a tight Incentive Policy and Process for Deserving Sports and Deserving Students only ~ keep a Small Number Cap too for each Sport ~ Select deserving students from the applications and not just dole out the additional 25 marks all those who have applied ~ like to all 21171 Students this year
~ and for God sake don’t include ‘Tug of War’ as a Deserving Sport ! ~ maybe consider it for joining the Youth Wings of Political Parties ! ~ but not for admission to Junior and Bachelor Degree in the Arts,Commerce, Science and Management Streams
