The 2001 Touchtel ATP World Doubles Challenge Cup was a tennis tournament played on outdoor hard courts. It was the 28th edition of the year-end doubles championships and was part of the 2001 ATP Tour. The tournament was held at the KSLTA Tennis Centre in Bangalore in India from January 28 through February 3, 2002.

The tournament had been scheduled to be played between November 7 and November 11, 2001 but was cancelled for security reasons.[1] The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) made up for the cancellation by rescheduling the tournament as the ATP World Doubles Challenge Cup and holding it early in the 2002 season.[2]
