With effect from 01 Apr 2021, there will be only single registration (AICF Registration) on pan India basis. As per the decision, the Registration Amount of Rs. 250/- will be shared equally between AICF and State Association (Rs. 125 each). Further, States are required to share Rs. 50/- from their share with the District Association of the player. So there will not be any District or State Association registration henceforth.
Kapil Saxena, Madhya Pradesh Chess Association, informed, this will ease the things for the player to avoid multiple registration at various levels and also provide insight to AICF regarding activities of District Associations for further development of game at grass root level.
