PIO ( Person of Indian origin ) / OCI ( Overseas Citizen of India ) card holders
As per Government of India guidelines / rules, players with PIO / OCI documents cannot play for India. As a result, AICF had taken a decision that these players cannot participate in any selection tournaments like district selection / State selection and National Championship which ultimately lead to the selection of the Indian National team. However these players can play in all FIDE rated events and other tournaments in India and abroad.
