As the Budget Speech 2019 did not specify the government institutions which are responsible for the implementation of proposals, it was obtained through a request for information filed under the Right to Information Act No 12 of 2016 (RTI request) filed with the Department of National Budget (NBD). As per the response of the NBD, the responsible ministry for this proposal was identified as the Presidential Secretariat and the RTI request for this proposal was filed with the Presidential Secretariat on 30 January 2020. The RTI request was subsequently transferred to the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs on 25 February 2020, as the Presidential Secretariat stated that this proposal did fall under their purview.
