WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, also an MP, informed the media that they are yet to get clearance form the Ministry of Home Affairs to conduct the event due to ambiguity over participation of Pakistani grapplers.
"We have not yet got clearance. I have asked for a meeting with the Home Minister this evening. If Pakistani contingent is denied visa, the UWW (world body) may ban us and take away the event from India. It's Pakistan's right to compete at the event ," Singh told reporters.
"Usually the process begins two months from the event but we began it four months back. But a few officials do not understand that it is a serious matter. The United World Wrestling can take action against us. They can ban us, bar us from competing in Olympics.
"It's not a bilateral meet, it's an Asian Championship. Pakistan can't be denied the chance to compete. Pakistan is not at mercy of India to compete. Only after giving guarantee, which ensures participation of all countries, we are allotted tournaments," he said.
Singh also said they were getting calls from various UWW officials and it was "bothering" them.
India and Pakistan have not played a full bilateral cricket series since 2007 with the the Indian government not giving a go ahead to the BCCI in the backdrop of tense relations between the two countries.
Recently squash players from Pakistan struggled to secure visas for the Junior World Championship, starting July 17 in Chennai.
"Now the grapplers get two-month diet immediately after they join the national camp. It's helping them. And now we conduct five Nationals to provide platform to all age group wrestlers to showcase their skills," he said.
