hello respected members, i just want to know the procedure of getting FIDE rating, well there is an International open tournament coming up in my home town this month so if i participate there will i get FIDE rating?
Become a club player, get an athlete's ID in your federation, and you will also be registered in FIDE's list. Then play in rated tournaments to get an official FIDE rating.
Fide handbook is the best place to get the answer. Read section 7.14: http://www.fide.com/fide/handbook.html?id=172&view=article
and, to get updates on rating tournament, you can check chess-results.com and select your country. Also, there are chess calendars available over net for countries, states, cities etc.
