State Sports Minister Gajendra Singh Khimsar gave his approval for converting the swimming pool at Khel Gaon into an all-weather facility. Set-up of this facility will allow swimmers in Udaipur to practice throughout the year including winters and monsoon.

Council is conducting tests to make pool all weather this year. The pool will remain open in winters this year. Council expects additional revenues of Rs 3.5 Lakh due to conversion of pool into all-weather.
