A suspension on India hosting major events is set to be lifted after the Government provided assurances to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that it will grant athletes from all nations visas to enter the country.
The guarantees were made by sports secretary Radhey Shyam Julaniya in a letter sent to the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and copied to IOC President Thomas Bach.
It effectively ends any chance of India's bid for the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games being derailed, providing the Government fulfills its pledge.
India has also said it will enter the race for the 2026 Summer Youth Olympics and Asian Games in 2030.
