Nisha Rani Dutta


  • Archery player

  • The Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs approved an ex-gratia of Rs 5 lakh (from National Welfare Fund for Sportspersons) to archery player Nisha Rani Dutta who is living in a poor condition.

  • Nisha (21) is from Pathmada village in the Jamshedpur district of Jharkhand.

  • The move follows a news report that Ms Dutta, who has played in national and International archery competitions, was forced to sell her bow to repair her mud house. She had been trained by Tata Archery Academy and won gold medal at international archery championships, but discontinued the sport because of poverty. Her house collapsed during last year's monsoon.

  • She won a silver medal at the 2008 South Asian Federation Championship in Jharkhand, a bronze medal at the 2006 Bangkok Grand Prix, and the Best Player Award in the 2007 Asian Grand Prix in Taiwan.
