The time limit is three months for international tournaments, while it is 30 days for national level events,” Thapaliya said. The minister also instructed the NSC to call its board meeting at least once in two months and take the decisions on grant-related proposals of sports associations from the meeting by making procedures. “The NSC needs to seek approval from the minister if the grants are to be allocated before the board meeting,” the release added.
