The first draw for the AFC Zone will take place on 27 July, with FIFA rankings as on 20 July being considered. Teams will be seeded into four pots based on their rank.
India will enter the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers from the second round in November 2023. In this round, there will be nine four-team groups, with the four teams drawn from the four pots. Two teams each will progress to the third round from each group.

India are currently the last-placed team in Pot 2. If they can hold on to this, they will have to face only one of the Pot 1 teams - Japan, Iran, Australia, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, United Arab Emirates and Oman - in the second round.

All Pot 2 teams - Uzbekistan, China, Jordan, Bahrain, Syria, Vietnam, Palestine, Kyrgyzstan - would be successfully avoided.
India's hopes of being placed in Pot 2 as of July 20 rest heavily on whether FIFA will count the Hero Intercontinental Cup, which was played in June in Odisha. In case the tournament is considered in the FIFA rankings, India's current points will see them surpass Lebanon, and they do not have to worry about the outcome of the SAFF Championship final.
Although ad india now winner of saff they now secured pot 2 spot
