The Indian Shotgun team for the upcoming Paris-2024 Olympic Games was announced on Tuesday, 17 June after the meeting of the National Selection Committee organised by the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI). Senior Trap Shooter, Prithviraj Tondiman has made it into the Men's Trap Shooting team, while Rajeshwari Kumari will aim at the women's Trap Shooting crown. India's only male Skeet Shooter will be Anantjeet Singh Naruka. Raiza Dhillon and Maheshwari Chauhan will complete the five quota places earned by the shotgun team in women's Skeet.

Maheshwari and Anantjeet are going to participate as the only Indian pair in the Skeet Mixed team event. All these players are making their debut at the Paris Olympics. It is a coincidence that all the five players nominated are also going to participate in their first Olympic Games. NRAI Secretary, General Sultan Singh said after the meeting that there was tough competition for the Olympics and things could have changed if some shooters had won medals in the recently concluded Lonato World Cup. He added that the selectin committe believes that we have the best shotgun team, which has won the most medals ever for India and there is definitely a strong possibility of getting a second Olympic medal this time. He informed that the name of women Trap Shooter Shreyasi Singh was also approved by the committee and NRAI had written to ISSF (International Shooting Sports Body) for quota swapping. In this situation, her name can be finalised only after getting the necessary approval from ISSF.
