Union Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports on 2 January 2015 recognised Boxing India (BI) as the governing body for representing boxing in India.
In this regard, the Ministry allowed Boxing India to use the name under the Emblems & Names (Prevention of Improper use) Act, 1950 for all its future correspondence.
BI already has been recognised as national federation by International Boxing Association (AIBA) to represent boxing in India and registered it as permanent member.
The registration is a stepping stone in expediting the administrative formalities and streamlining the overall functioning and activities of Boxing India.
The President of Boxing India is Sandeep Jajodia and it has been constituted with the support of 32 state boxing associations. The federation will held its first Elite Men's National Championship at Nagpur from 8 January 2015 to 14 January 2015.
