In sport keeping the sport clean and fair is one of the major challenges faced by sporting federations and governments of various countries. Fair sport means every player having the equal opportunity of winning the sport without the use of any supplement or any kind dope that induces strength, power, agility, or stamina in one’s body.
Doping is a practice that is extensively followed by sportspersons in various sports at the national and international levels to gain an upper hand in the sport. This practice is strictly prohibited in all forms of sports but still, some players use Doping. To stop such unfair practices in sports in India, the National Anti Doping Agency (NADA) was formed.
NADA was registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860 on November 24 in 2005 to regulate, control, and restrict the usage of doping in Indian sports and mandate the doping rules and regulations formed by the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA). It becomes a supporting organization of the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports.
