Winners of medals to get Vikram awards

Bhopal. Players of the state, who won medals in the Olympics, Asian and Commonwealth Games, will no longer have to apply for the state's highest Vikram award. The state government has amended the award rules in this regard and a notification has been issued. This award will be given to players deprived of the Vikram Award in the year the Games are held. For this it will not be mandatory for them to apply before the last date of application.

Coaches of the players of the state who have participated in the Olympic, Asian or Commonwealth games and also won medals the same year, will also be given Vishwamitra award on applying for it in the same year. They too will not be bound to apply before the last date.
