Due to move of offices and upgrading of computers and technical software and hardware in the past 20 years, it has been an onerous task to verify norms achieved from old tournaments based on the then prevailing title regulations when the tournaments took place. Instead of tracking old regulations and old tournament results whenever an application is received, the QC recommended that norms achieved prior to 1st July 2005 be registered before 1st July 2013. Titles (FM/WFM/CM/WCM) achieved through a published rating or from an Olympiad result prior to 1st July 2005, must also be registered before 1st July 2013. Failing which, such norms or title claims will be considered to have expired on 1st July 2013. In addition with readily available information from the recent years, the QC hopes to move towards automation of title awards as soon as possible.

The PB approved the recommendation of the QC.
