The Hockey India has launched its Match Officials Education & Development Plan as part of the induction programme for potential umpires and technical officials in the Hockey India officiating system. This initiative aims to develop and educate the current officials officiating in district or state-level tournaments, providing them with an opportunity to progress to the status of Hockey India-registered national umpire or technical official.

The educational plan will provide officials with the opportunity to advance and be inducted into the Hockey India officiating system. This initiative will initially enable them to officiate in Hockey India-sanctioned All India Sub Junior & Junior category Tournaments & National Championships, Hockey India informed in a release on Saturday.
