AITA is planning for total 40 futures (mostly including men and women) this year ... They have asked for 20 crores grant from the government.

So they want 50L on average for organizing a futures level event.

20% of the money goes into organization and 80% goes into their pockets?

Delhi Challenger on hold due to lack of dedication & funds. AITA refusing to adhere to the Sports Code seems to be hurting them real bad with no assistance from MYAS

I guess they did adher to sports code by appointing a new president.

In any case I think organising futures and challengers would be a loss making proposition across the world. Not many are willing to pay to watch these events live or on TV. So, where will they get sponsorship from ? Govt aid is very much needed to organise these events. Without that it is difficult.
