One time clemency to chess players who took part in unauthorized tournaments.

Published on: April 1st, 2013

AICF has decided to offer one time clemency to all those players who took part in unauthorized tournaments so that they can join the main stream and continue their chess activities, provided they give a letter of regret for participating in such unauthorized tournaments and assuring us not to repeat the mistake. However, those who have won prize money shall be allowed only after remitting 50% of such money with a letter of regret stated above with an assurance not to repeat the mistake again.   Such letters of regret and assurance should be forwarded to AICF through the respective State Chess Associations or special units on receipt of which the ratings of such players will be immediately restored.

This decision has been taken after receiving lot of representations as the new season is starting from 01st April 2013 and many National Championships are in the offing.

CAUTION

A set of disgruntled elements have announced that they have formed a Chess Association as rivals to the All India Chess Federation. In their mails the Chess Association of India has announced that, with the permission of World Chess Federation Inc (a rival to FIDE) they will organize an open tournament at Delhi from 23rd Dec with a Prize fund of Rs.15 Lakhs

All India Chess Federation cautions all chess players affiliated to us not to participate in these tournaments or any other tournament to be organized by Chess Association of India in future as their events are not recognized by All India Chess Federation and as such not authorized by AICF. This is to further remind all AICF registered players that you have signed a declaration in the players registration form, which we quote for your ready reference

“I also declare that I will not participate in any unauthorized tournament / championship”

By playing in the tournaments conducted by Chess Association of India, the registered players of AICF will attract disciplinary action and hence are cautioned against playing in the tournaments to be organized by the rival body. – Published on 09th December, 2009
