New Delhi: India is all set to return to Olympics fold. A major breakthrough in this regard was made during a crucial meeting between Indian representatives and International Olympic committee (IOC) at Lussane on Wednesday.

IOC had banned India in December last year for not following Olympic charter. Now, a timeline with proper description has been decided for lifting the ban. Sports Minister Jitendra Singh said that ban will be lifted only after going through the process and norms set by the IOC. He also said that the meeting was positive and consent over rules for age and tenure has been achieved.

IOC has also released statement in which it was mentioned that meeting was quite fruitful. The objective of the meeting was to amend the IOA constitution as well as to search for the possible ways to conduct independent, unbiased and transparent election according to the Olympic charter.

IOC also said that the Sports Minister assured that the government will respect the autonomy of Olympics.
