They are: Aquatics, Diving (10), Swimming (44), Athletics (50), Badminton (6), Boxing (13), Cycling – Mountain biking (2), Road (4), Track (17), Gymnastics – Artistic gymnastics (14), Rhythmic gymnastics (6), Hockey (2), Judo (14), Lawn Bowls (10), Netball (1), Rugby sevens (1), Shooting (19), Squash (5), Table tennis (7), Triathlon (3), Weightlifting (19), Wrestling – Freestyle (14). India will be participating in 14 of those 17 events at Glasgow. The three events India will not be participating are netball, rugby sevens and triathlon. There are total 1, 385 medals to be won in this edition of Commonwealth Games.

The medals tally of the Commonwealth Games 2014 will be decided on the number of gold medals won. With the nations tied at gold medals, the second yardstick to measure is on the silver medals and then bronze. If the teams are still tied, they would be given equal ranking with the team placed according to alphabetical order. There are 4, 947 athletes participating from 71 countries.
