"I would try utmost to get gold medals in the forthcoming world meet," said Dipa, who will stay here for a few days with her family before joining practice in Delhi.
The 22-year-old became the first Indian woman gymnast to qualify for the Olympics and capped it with a gold medal at the test event in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro, where the summer Olympics would be held from August 5 to 21.
Dipa is only the second Indian gymnast to have won a Commonwealth Games medal (2014).
She finished fourth in the Asian Games in the same year and then won bronze at the Artistic Gymnastics Asian Championships in Japan in 2015.
A five-time national overall individual champion between 2010-2014, Karmakar was given the Arjuna Award last year.
