The Free Fire India Championship Finals, which was supposed to be held on the 28th of March, has been postponed indefinitely as the current COVID-19 situation makes life harder for everyone involved. The tournament was earlier moved online after initially being announced as a LAN to be held in Kolkata and finally has now been postponed following recent developments. 

What’s more interesting is the fact that second placed team Desert Gods have been disqualified from the competition after it was found that one of the players was smurfing. His account was being used by someone else from another city and with it being a flagrant violation of the rules, the organizers have decided to disqualify the team. This now means that the 13th placed team, ATP Kings should get a spot in the finals, but this has not been confirmed. It is also possible that the tournament will proceed with 11 teams.
