The general body also nominated six persons, including former shooter and current International Olympic Committee member in India, Randhir Singh, to various honorary posts for their contribution in promoting the sport in the country. Randhir was nominated as life president.

The other five were B S Adityan (life president), Sunny Thomas (life vice-president), Navin Jindal (patron–in–chief), Jagjit Singh (patron), Col Jaswant Singh (chairman emeritus), T S Dhillon (vice chairman emeritus).
