Sochi, Russia: Indian flag will fly at Sochi Winter Olympic after the International Olympic Committee lifted India's suspension.

He also said that a special flag raising ceremony will be held in the Olympic Village in Sochi.
   
The Indian Olympic Association ended the stand-off by holding elections on Sunday after amending its constitution to comply with the Olympic guidelines.
