World Archery has lifted the suspension it placed on the Archery Association of India (AAI) in August, opening the door for Indian athletes to compete for their country at this summer's Olympic Games in Tokyo.
The Federation had been suspended after two factions within the organisation held rival elections on the same day, voting two different people to the post of President.
However, following fresh elections last week, Indian archers may now compete in World Archery competitions once again as the suspension is no longer in place.
Union Minister Arjun Munda was on Saturday (January 19) elected President of the AAI after the much-delayed elections were held in presence of three observers, including one from World Archery.
Munda defeated his rival BVP Rao by 34 votes to 18.
As some of the conditions of its reinstatement, the AAI has been told to develop a strategic plan, update its constitution in relation to athlete membership and address other governance issues, with a progress to report to be assembled every three months.
“We hope this is the start of a well-governed association in India and will help, where necessary, to develop the strategy that will accomplish this," said Tom Dielen, World Archery's secretary general.
Indian archers had to compete as neutral athletes at the Asian Championships because of the suspension.
India currently has four quota places for the 2020 Olympics - three men's and one women's.
