"The tournament has consistently raised its bar over the years and our efforts have been appreciated by the BWF for which they have awarded us the hosting right of the tournament for next four years," BAI President Akhilesh Das Gupta said on Monday.

"We want to extend the reach of the sport and so we are looking at tier II cities such as Jaipur and Chandigarh to host our domestic league," he said.

"We are also in talks with the Asian bodies to host a Asian badminton league, comprising only shuttlers from Asia," the BAI president added.
