After the Judo Federation of India was derecognised on April 22, the Sports Authority of India (SAI) constituted a committee of experts to oversee the selection process and trials of players for the Commonwealth Games and suggested necessary changes. The committee includes Olympian judo players Kawas Billimoria, Sandeep Bayala and Sunit Thakur, besides judo masters Arun Dwivedi and Yogesh K Dhadve.
