The MRB officials told the minister that they would provide monetary assistance of Rs 50,000 each to two professional boxers – Lalrinsanga Tlau, who is currently playing in Dubai and NT Lalbiakkima, a resident of Siaha town.

Replying to the minister’s request, the MRB officials also said they would extend all possible help to the sports persons through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
