The individual event at the PDDU Indoor Stadium was kicked off by the local mixed doubles pair of Manav Thakkar and Filzah Fatema Kadri who upset top seeds Sanil Shetty and R. Tennison of Maharashtra to reach the quarterfinals.

Five of the eight seeds in the mixed doubles draw failed to reach the quarterfinals. Shetty won in a closely fought contest against Uttar Pradesh’s Divyansh Srivastava. The left-hander from Mumbai, Maharashtra was clearly struggling for rhythm but held his nerve at 9-9 to grab two quick points to win 11-5, 7-11, 9-11, 11-8, 11-9, 7-11, 11-9.
