Chennai: The All India Chess Federation on Friday decided to ban FIDE rated Indian chess players from competing in "unauthorised" events in the country and outside.

"It was resolved that the names of FIDE rated players who have become members of the Chess Association of India and participate in unauthorised tournaments will be removed from the rating list," AICF Secretary D V Sundar said after the federation`s annual general body meeting.

The AICF has also decided to lift the suspension of Delhi based RS Tiwari, an international arbiter, after his apology and approved Grandmaster Lev Psakhis of Israel and Grandmaster Oleg Romanishin of Ukraine as coaches for the Indian men and women teams.

The members commended the success of Viswanathan Anand who retained his world championship title in Sofia recently.

Sundar said Psakhis and Romanishin would be coaching Indian men and women teams for the Chess Olympiad in Russia and the Asian games in China.

The venue for training would be a hill station such as Udhagamandalam (Ooty).

AICF also accepted the name change to Goa Chess Association from the earlier name.
