New Delhi: The Sports Ministry on Wednesday released the Standard Operative Procedure (SOP) to identify circumstances of female hyperandrogenism under which a particular athlete will not be eligible to participate in competitions in the female category.

The Ministry in a letter to the States and Union Territories, Sports Authority of India (SAI) and recognised National Sports Federations has urged them to appoint Nodal officers and alternate nodal officers as per the said guidelines and display their name, designation, address and telephone numbers on their website.

A statement from the Sports Ministry further said that appointed nodal officers are required to take necessary actions as per the SOP.
