Goel spoke about this while addressing the 64th meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) and  said it was “essential” to take this step so as to deal with the growing incidence of diabetes and other non-communicable diseases among children.

He also said that students should also be given “marks” for their involvement in sports activities so as to promote it.



Goel emphasised that this needs to be implemented without any delay as he believes this would also help India realise the full potential of sports.

He said that every educational institution should have access to a playfield, and other basic sports facilities. As for institutions which do not have these, they should tie up with neighbouring institutions to be able to use their facility.
