India is scheduled to compete at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 5 to 21 August 2016. Indian athletes have appeared in every edition of the Summer Olympics since 1920, although they had its official debut at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris.

The Indian Olympic Association is going to send the nation’s largest ever delegation (a total of 124 athletes; 41 larger than their previous record of 83 athletes in 2012) in Summer Olympic history.

This list of 124 athletes includes Inderjeet Singh and Dharambir Singh who have been suspended from travelling to Rio after having failed both the dope tests. The National Anti-Doping Agency of India is presently conducting an investigation in both cases and a final decision is still pending

Previously, wrestler Narsingh Pancham Yadav also failed both A and B sample dope tests but was given a clean chit by the National Anti-Doping Agency of India on grounds that he had been a victim of sabotage
