Earlier, the CGF had urged the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) as well as the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) to raise the number of quota places for the Indian pugilists.
After accepting the request, the CGF has increased the quota number to 12 in boxing - an increase of one quota place in women's category, which means the BFI could now send one more woman boxer in contrast to three women boxers in Glasgow in 2014.
Meanwhile, a total of seven more quota places have been offered in athletics, thus taking the Indian sport's contingent size to 37 as compared to Glasgow's 32 in the discipline.
In basketball, the CGF has decided to straightaway add 24 quota places (12 men and 12 women) to the country's overall contingent size. It will be after a gap of eight years that the basketball teams would participate at the CWG.
However, there is a fall in the number of quota place in gymnastics as the it has been reduced from 10 at Glasgow to seven (2 men and 5 women) this time around.
Here is the entire list of Indian contingent break-up:
• Aquatics: Men -3 (Total: 3)
Athletics: Men- 23, Women -14 (Total: 37)
• Badminton: Men -4, Women -5 (Total: 9)
