With one-third (22 out of the 66) Indian medal winners in the 21st Commonwealth Games being from Haryana, the state government announced on Monday that it will honour all of them on April 26.

"Every gold medal winner will get a cash award of Rs 1.5 crore, silver medal winner Rs 75 lakh and bronze medal winner Rs 50 lakh," Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said while addressing a public meeting at village Siwah in Panipat.

He added, "The Indian contingent finished third in the medal tally with a total of 66 medals in CWG. Haryana players, especially the women, led the medal tally for India with a total of 22 individual medals which is 33 percent."

“In addition, the players would be appointed as HCS (Haryana Civil Service) and HPS (Haryana Police Service) officers as well as in other government jobs according to their achievements.” 

Haryana contributes to two percent of the total Indian population, yet is considered a hub of sports with laurels at national and international level with their performances. It is also the only state in the country where cash award of Rs 6 crore is given for winning the gold medal in Olympics, Rs 4 crore for the silver medal and Rs 2.5 crore for the bronze medal.
