Kumar is among the eight names recommended for this year`s Dronacharya Award in the lifetime category. On the other hand, five coaches will be conferred with the Dronacharya Award in the regular category.

National Sports Awards which include the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, the Arjuna award, the Dronacharya award, and the Dhyan Chand award, are conferred on athletes every year by the President of India at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on August 29, the National Sports Day.

However, this year, the names would be announced by President Ram Nath Kovind virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
