As Rajveer belongs to a poor family, so his father was unable to fulfill his requirements regarding sports. Then Sarve Sikhiya Abhiyan, Ludiana support him. A daily diet was provided him when he was not on coaching schedule. SSA paid his passport instantaneously fee and and travel expenses for this. His coach asked him for a racer cycle which was too costly to buy for this family. Then district IED coordinator contacted a city business man Mr. Rahul Kalra and he donate a racer cycle to Rajveer.
