India was one of the first five founding members of the Asian Games Federation on 13 February 1949, in New Delhi; the organisation was disbanded on 26 November 1981 and replaced by the Olympic Council of Asia.[2][3]

Membership of Olympic Council of Asia

India is a member of the South Asian Zone of the Olympic Council of Asia, the governing body of all the sports in Asia, recognized by the International Olympic Committee as the continental association of Asia.[4][5][a] Being a member of South Asian Zone, India also participates in the South Asian Games, sub-regional Games for South Asia.[6]

The OCA organises five major continental-level multi-sport events: the Asian Summer Games (which are commonly known as the Asian Games), Asian Winter Games, Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games, Asian Beach Games, and Asian Youth Games. Before 2009, Indoor and Martial Arts were two separate events for indoor and martial arts sports respectively. However, the OCA has since amalgamated them into a single event, the Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games, which was debuted in 2013 in Incheon, South Korea.[7] As a member of OCA, India is privileged to participate in all these multi-sport events.

Hosted Games

New Delhi, the national capital of India, has hosted the Asian Games on two occasions: the inaugural 1951 Asian Games and the 1982 Asian Games.[8]

Four of the five gold medals came from athletics and one came from the swimming competition. Aaron Agnel Dsouza was the only multiple medal winner. Dsouze won a gold in the 200 m freestyle and a bronze in the 100 m freestyle.[16] India's membership in IOC was suspended when the 2013 games took place so Indian athletes competed in the event as independent athletes.
