For mote detail see attachment.

All India Chess Federation will never be able to provide such facility as they themselves are fraud, Constitution and Bye Laws which are not approved by Registrar for past 3 years are uploded on their website as approved.
With such acts All India Chess Federation and their Executive body are putting Indian Chess and Chess players career in peril.

Their are other acts of omission and commission on part of AICF which can be termed as fraud.


A set of disgruntled elements have announced that they have formed a Chess Association as rivals to the All India Chess Federation. In their mails the Chess Association of India has announced that, with the permission of World Chess Federation Inc (a rival to FIDE) they will organize an open tournament at Delhi from 23rd Dec with a Prize fund of Rs.15 Lakhs

All India Chess Federation cautions all chess players affiliated to us not to participate in these tournaments or any other tournament to be organized by Chess Association of India in future as their events are not recognized by All India Chess Federation and as such not authorized by AICF. This is to further remind all AICF registered players that you have signed a declaration in the players registration form, which we quote for your ready reference

“I also declare that I will not participate in any unauthorized tournament / championship”

By playing in the tournaments conducted by Chess Association of India, the registered players of AICF will attract disciplinary action and hence are cautioned against playing in the tournaments to be organized by the rival body.
