The Youth Advancement, Tourism and Culture (Sports) department issued a GO (Ms No.5) on Monday. It may be recalled that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had announced the two per cent reservation in government jobs for sportspersons last month while felicitating players who had taken part in the Commonwealth Games.

The GO said there will be two per cent reservation for meritorious sportspersons in direct recruitment in the existing 100 roaster points as per rules. In the event of non-availability of eligible sportspersons, the points reserved for them should be deemed to be ceased and allotted to open competition in the same recruitment. The reservations are applicable for 29 types of sports activities.

“This move by the government will help aspiring youngsters to excel in sports,” sports minister Padma Rao said.
