The objective of such competitions is to attract the student’s community towards sports & other healthy activities so that students can be provided a chance to take part in physical activities during their student life. This will also serve as a nursery for players for different sports for national teams.

All the Universities (Public & Private) & Degree Awarding Institutes recognised by Ministry of Tertiary education have equal right to participate in Intervarsity Sports Championships organized over a period of one months.
