AIBA unanimously granted full membership to the recently-formed Boxing Federation of India, BFI at a meeting on the sidelines of its 70th anniversary gala in Montreux, Switzerland. 
BFI President Ajay Singh, who is currently in Montreux to take part in the AIBA event, told this today. With this, India's return to the international boxing fold is complete. 
India's international suspension for the past four years had resulted in the isolation of the country's boxers, who were deprived of foreign exposure for most part. 
The lack of competitive boxing was a major factor in the boxers' medal-less Olympic campaign in Rio after only three made the cut, a sharp decline from the eight who participated in the 2012 edition. The BFI was voted to office in September earlier this year, ending four years of administrative logjam in the sport.
