July 4, 2016
India's Sports Ministry has granted recognition to the Paralympic Committee of India, which will be a big encouragement to the para-athletes who have qualified for Rio Paralympics.
Less than a month back the International Paralympic Committee lifted the suspension order on the PCI so that India can take part in the Rio event to be held from 7 to 18 September.
A record number of 20 Indian para-athletes have qualified for the event.
