The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) on Tuesday launched its first mobile application to eliminate the gap between itself and the athletes by providing easily-accessible information on various aspects of sport, prohibited substances and dope-testing.

The application was launched by Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju through videoconferencing in the presence of Sports Secretary Ravi Mittal and NADA DG Navin Agarwal. “I congratulate NADA on this initiative. It is very important because we are working towards clean sports and the first step in that direction is to create awareness and provide relevant, accessible information so that athletes know which medication or substances are not to be used. With this, athletes can check for themselves the list of prohibited substances and don’t have to depend on anyone else for assistance,” Rijiju said.


NADA is hopeful that the app acts as a one-stop guide for all anti-doping and medication related information. It includes detailed information on commonly-prescribed medicines and can be used by athletes in the Registered Testing Pool (RTP) to update their whereabouts, know about decisions from the disciplinary and appeal panels and for Dope Control Officers to record their availability for testing.

Interestingly, the app has been available online since the beginning of this year but formally launched only now.
