However, the rest of the boxers will have to go through the trials.
"The gold-medallists in each weight category will represent India in the AIBA women's world championship except 69kg (as) Tokyo Olympics bronze-medalist Lovlina Borgohain will see direct qualification for the world championships," the BFI wrote on their Twitter handle.
The Women's National Championships will take place at St Joseph's International School in Hisar from October 21-27. This event will also mark the return of the Elite Women's National Championships after a gap of more than one year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The tournament will be played as per the AIBA's revised 12 weight divisions - 48kg, 50kg, 52kg, 54kg, 57kg, 60kg, 63kg, 66kg, 70kg, 75kg, 81kg, and 81kg with the last date of registrations being October 8 by number and October 13 by name.
