In the Olympics India stowed two awards with shuttler P.V. Sindhu and wrestler Sakshi Malik grabbing silver and bronze decorations separately. 

In the Paralympics, India secured four awards, including two gold. Spear hurler Devendra Jhajharia and high jumper Thangavelu Mariyappan brought home the yellow metal, while shot putter Deepa Malik and high jumper Varun Bhati won silver and bronze decorations individually. 

Dhingra said he trusts that accomplishments in the greatest games field on the planet should be perceived and remunerated by whatever number corporate houses, people and games bodies as could be allowed. 

Dhingra, a previous secretary of the Sports Authority of India said: "I trust that when India's golfers perform at the most abnormal amount then they too will get congratulated by different associations. This will raise the profile of games individuals everywhere throughout the nation." 

What's more, the DGC has likewise declared a money honor of Rs 5 lakh for Pullela Gopichand's Badminton foundation in Hyderabad. 

Sindhu said thanks to the Delhi Golf Club saying "each honor is uncommon for me and further inspires me to win for my nation".
