Dr. T. R. B. Rajaa, member of Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, recently attended the grand finals of Skyesports Champion Series in Chennai. The MLA witnessed Global Esports and Team Enigma in action and even congratulated GE for winning the SCS title.
Skyesports Champion Series was the pinnacle of South Asian Valorant Esports and its third phase was hosted in Chennai in LAN format. Dr. T. R. B. Rajaa was invited to this finals and he praised the event management for hosting a tournament “on par with international standards.”
Indian esports is on the verge of being recognized by the Government of India as efforts are being taken to make it official. Recently, a new task force called AVCG was formed and announced on 2022-23 Annual Budget Summit by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.
Being a Chennaite myself, it was an honour to have Dr. T R B Rajaa attend the Skyesports Champions Series (SCS) LAN in Chennai. We are working to growing Esports from the grassroots level and having the support of the government is empowering to do this even further.Shiva Nandy, CEO and Founder, Skyesports
AVCG commission stands for animation, visual effects, comic, and gaming and is tasked to oversee the growth of these industries in India to gradually implement measures to increase domestic production that will sever at a national as well as in an international scale. Growth in this scale will translate to employment and economic growth while passive assisting other industries to thrive.
In one of his tweets, Dr. Rajaa mentioned that Tamil Nadu Planning Commission under the Chief Minister office of Tamil Nadu will ensure that Tamil Nadu will become the number one destination for AVCG infrastructure.
The approval and encouragement of Tamil Nadu MLA to the esports industry and Skyesports is certainly a big achievement and would lead to a successful future of gaming and esports in India.
