Indian Boxing Federation, already banned by its world body, has now been officially derecognised by the Sports Ministry. The association was provisionally suspended in December 2012, for a flawed election process, the same reason why the world body banned them too. And now the failure to have fresh elections after more than a year, has lead to the Sports Ministry derecognising them. Application for a fresh boxing association has been made to the world body. In case the entire process is not completed by the end of May, India's boxers may not be able to compete under the Indian flag at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July.
