The Panasonic Open India, which will offer USD 400,000 this year- an increase of USD 100,000 from past editions and has attracted some of the leading players from the region including two-time Order of Merit winner Thaworn Wiratchant of Thailand and Mardan Mamat of Singapore.
However, Lahiri and Chawrasia will be missing in action at DGC as they will be competing at the WGC-HSBC Champions at Shanghai, China in the European Tour.
Gangjee and Mithun Perera of Sri Lanka, who finished tied second last year, will feature alongside Australia's Marcus Both, Bangladesh's Siddikur Rahman and Indian duo of Gaganjeet
Bhullar and Rashid Khan in the event.
Gangjee, who was left heartbroken when he lost in a play-off to Chawrasia and Perera last year, is hoping to break his title jinx at the DGC this week.
After struggling with his driver this year, Gangjee, who won his last title at the Volkswagen Masters in 2004 is excited to return to the tree-lined Delhi Golf Club.
"I played on this golf course so many times. If I hit it well then I'm always in contention here. I did that good last year and I led for all four days. It was a chance for me to win last year after many years. I did a really good job but it
didn't work out my way. It took me a few months to recover from that defeat and realign my thoughts," he said.
Also in contention will be Chirag, who secured his Asian Tour card by finishing second at the Venetian Macau Open last month.
