Hockey India (Hindi: हॉकी इंडिया) is the governing body of field hockey in India. It was formed after Indian Hockey Federation was dismissed in 2008 by IOA.

Difficulties[edit]

Many State bodies are not ready to accept Hockey India but the Federation of International Hockey (FIH) says that a democratic elected body is absolsting 2010 Men's Hockey World Cup. This is a problem faced by Hockey India.

[edit]

Hockey India launched its own logo in a grand ceremony on July 24, 2009, in India. It resembles Ashok Chakra of Indian flag. It is made up of field hockey sticks..

Latest Development[edit]

In a significant way forward, Indian Hockey Federation (I.H.F) & Hockey India (H.I) on 25 July 2011 signed an agreement leading up to formation of a joint executive board which shall perform the function of the National Sports Federation for field hockey. The agreement was signed after long deliberations on the basis of an agreement formula proposed by Ajay Maken, the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Youth Affairs and Sports. This breakthrough administrative arrangement will end the duality existing in field hockey for more than 2 ½ years.
