By Arvind Aaron

The September 2015 rating list is significant to Indians. The number of Indians crossed the 50,000 number. Importantly, no other nation is close! Russia is behind on 48501. On Sep 1, 2015 India had 50863. On Sep 7, 2015 India has climbed to 50921!

The number of players in the rating list is important since it includes those with rating and without rating. And those without rating are going to keep playing and will soon emerge in the list.
