New Delhi: The Indian Grand Prix is expected to return in 2016 as a "fruitful" meeting between Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone and race promoters has prepared the ground for the comeback of the high-profile event.

The meeting was held on the sidelines of the inaugural Russian Grand Prix in Sochi, last month.

The Indian Grand Prix was dropped from the 2014 calendar after three successful seasons, owing to tax and bureaucratic hurdles, leaving fans and experts to wonder whether the elite global event will comeback at all. The race has already been ruled out for 2015.
