Recently there are rumours about riot giving a slot for an Indian team in its official event. If this happens there will be a big spike in eSports market of India. But there can be some complications about Valorant getting banned in India as riot is related with Tencent.

I don't know about it, but since F0rsaken case in csgo I've never heard anything about Indian E-sport anymore bruh.
i believe there are many good teams in India.

Funnily, that guy is still part of Indian esport scene lol. His nickname now is skrossi, a jett valorant player.

1 spot for "South Asia" read: India and 1 spot for "East Asia" read: China
2 spots for KR, SEA and JP to make 8 teams

I imagine that there is a plan to provide them with a slot in the future, but much like China they just have not had enough contact with the esports scene to announce anything. I would guess that for the near future the Indian scene will be grouped with a nearby scene for the purposes of qualifying, and that something more permanent (perhaps including a permanent slot for a nearby region outside of SEA) is being planned for once LANs can be done more effectively. The reintroduction of LANs to competition can allow for teams across a larger area to contest each other after winning something more local on a more even playing field less affected by geography and servers locations.

Note: China has not had an official release for valorant yet, and as such they have a scene that is not approved by the CCP, making it a more complicated situation there when compared to the rest of the world.

India has real talent but due to the lack of exposure, Indian esports has a lack of support, and thus it isn't flourishing. Hopefully, Riot gives India a slot.
