India have been drawn in Group D of the BWF World Junior Championships 2023 alongside Germany, Brazil, Cook Island and Dominican Republic. The BWF World Junior Championships is scheduled to take place in Spokane, USA from September 25.

India are seeded 10th in this event and are the second seeds in their group after sixth seeds Germany. India are expected to progress from the group stages in the team event if they can get the better of Germany, but are likely to face a tough test in Malaysia in the first knockout round.
