its now 1000 per day, and its an allowance.
i think transportation issue was sorted in post 2005-2010 era. because i remember reading a news article of then Indian GK Subrata Pal saying that we are now travelling in 2nd AC compartment whereas earlier they were not even sure of sleeper class ticket and instead sometimes travelled in unreserved coaches.
Later on since post 2010 players were travelling in planes with all expenses covered.
This makes me think how much hardships players like Bhaichung Bhutai and IM Vijyan went through.

In the interview, CK Vineeth tells about lots of state level players who played for Kerala in Santosh Trophy and other departmental teams find it difficult to move to other clubs because of fearing of losing jobs. One of the names he mentiond was about Asif Saheer who played for Kerala & SBT was such a talented guy to never get into NT setup.One of the biggest info which I was very curious over the years was how much salary does playing for NT give?Vineeth said there is no such fixed salary for NT but once you are called up for the camp, for every days you spend there until the matchday you get 600 rupees per day. This info is until he last played for NT which comes around 2017. He is not sure if it is increased now.
