The zonal ceremonies were held in Delhi (North Zone), Bengaluru (South Zone), Kolkata (East Zone) and Pune (West Zone). Each zonal ceremony had the three state finalists from the respective states under that zone competing for the state crown. The Femina Miss India Organisation has waved off the Bikini round for audition. So, there will be no Swimsuit competition for the aspirants this year onwards.
