India may bid to host the 2019 Asian Games.
Randhir Singh, secretary Indian Olympic Association, told Press Trust of India on Thursday that "all that is needed is to factor in the escalation cost from 2014 to 2019, which can be done by the government's financial authorities."
India lost the 2014 Asian Games bid to Incheon, South Korea. It hosted the Commonwealth Games last month after trouble-plagued preparations.
New Delhi -- which will be India's choice for the 2019 Asian Games -- was criticized for construction delays of venues and corruption allegations in the build up to the event.
The bid document deadline is February.
