AFI president Adille Sumariwala said that he had met the sports secretary and had addressed the issues.
"I have met the sports secretary and have addressed the points raised by the sports ministry. I want to make it clear that the AFI is completely in sync with the sports ministry. We have adopted the sports code in respect to the terms and the age of the office bearers," he said.
The notice to AFI comes close on the heels of the sports ministry de-recognising the Archery Association of India (AAI) and the Indian Boxing Federation (IBF). The world boxing body AIBA had also suspended recognition to IBF on grounds manipulation in the election process.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has also suspended the IOA.
