Chess was born over 1500 years ago in India during the Gupta empire and it was called Chaturanga. The previous chess World Champion was our very own Vishy Anand. There are so many great aspiring chess players - India is a chess country - yet there is no central place where all of this is reported.
Our mission for this website is to replicate the high standard of reporting that the ChessBase team has built up over many years for international chess and apply this to all the great Indian tournaments, events and players to create the best possible source of local Indian news.
We have tied up with the ChessBase headquarters in Hamburg and now have a license to bring their world class products to the Indian market at specially tailored prices, that are adapted to Indian incomes and will only be available to Indian residents. ChessBase products like ChessBase 13, Mega database and many others are indispensable for any serious player of the game. We believe that bringing these to India at affordable prices will help unleash even more of the talent present in India. You can check out the special rates in our shop.
To put it in simple words, ChessBase India mainly has two purposes:
1. To cover tournaments taking place in India and also follow the top Indian players playing in foreign countries.
2. To make ChessBase products available at special discounted rates for people residing in India.
This will help to popularize the game of chess in the country and help the Indian chess players to become stronger and better.
