The AITA officials also discussed Delhi as a venue for the crucial play-off tie, to be held from September 12-14, but on the insistence of the players Bangalore was finally selected to host the matches.
It was in Bangalore that India thrashed Indonesia 5-0 last year.
"We consulted the captain and also the players before deciding the host city. Maybe the players like the slow courts there, so they wanted matches in Bangalore," Bharat Oza, AITA Secretary General, said.
India defeated Korea 3-1 in an away Asia/Oceania Group I second round tie to reach the play-off stage while Serbia lost 2-3 to Switzerland in the World Group first round.
The last time India and Serbia clashed was in 2011 when the visitors lost 1-4 in Novi Sad. It will be humongous task for the struggling Indian side to contain a team, which has top-class players such as World No.2 Novak Djokovic in its ranks.
