Sports is essential component of human resource development and helps to inculcate comradeship and a healthy spirit of competition. Excellence in sports enhances the sense of achievement, national pride and patriotism. In Meghalaya, the development of sports activities did not get priority inasmuch as only 0.32 per cent to 0.42 per cent of the State's budgetary outlay were earmarked for these activities. The State does not have a sports policy or any long term plan for the development of sports. Sports infrastructure like outdoor stadia, swimming pools and indoor stadia, crucial to sports development were lacking in districts. Taking up of projects for sports infrastructure without ensuring availability of land and funds resulted in non-completion of 23 sports infrastructure.

Thirteen sports infrastructure were in dilapidated condition due to lack of seriousness in maintenance of these infrastructures. Coaching activities were entirely left to the discretion of the individual coaches and the Director of Sports and Youth Affairs was not monitoring their work in any manner. The National Sports Policy of providing scientific and technical support to sports coaching had not been implemented in the State. Meghalaya Value Added Tax totalling RS 34.36 lakh, deducted by the Directorate of Housing from the suppliers bills, was embezzled by faking the documents showing that the amount was deposited into Government account.
