Roadmap for India's return to Olympic fold discussed, says sports minister

As a first step towards India's return to the Olympic fold, sports minister Jitendra Singh said in Lausanne on Wednesday that the International Olympic Committee has agreed to work with the Indian government for the new proposed Sports Bill. The sports ministry had been insisting on the implementation of the Sports Bill that limits the age and tenure of an official representing a national sports federation. The Indian Olympic Association was banned in December last year for failing to hold elections as per the Olympic Charter.
