SAI stands for Sports Authority of India. It is a registered society which was constituted by the Government of India in 1984 with the following objectives :

(a) Grant sports scholarship : There is a provision to give scholarships to sportspersons, according to their ability. The merit list of sports achievements at national level is prepared for awarding scholarships. 

(b) Search new sports talent : There are a number of sports talented children in rural areas in India who cannot continue their career in sports due to lack of guidance, resource and finance. SAI takes care of this thing and helps in bringing such talent to the front. 

(c) Organise National Sports Talent Competition : SAI organises sports talent competitions at national level in which good talented sportspersons are selected. 

(d) Run National Physical Health Scheme : Under this scheme, the focus is on health care of all the people. To accomplish this, SAI conducts National Physical Health Function on pan India basis. 

(e) Create awareness about sports nutrition : SAI organises nutrition camps to create awareness about nutritional needs of various age groups and organises events to create and spread awareness about importance of a wellbalanced nutritious diet. 

(f) Encourage indigenous games and martial arts : SAI has taken firm determination to popularize the indigenous games and martial arts. Due to this, these games are organised in the north-eastern states of India. As a result, these games still exist in those parts of the country.

SAI has prepared various schemes for promotions of games and sports at all levels
