India finished fourth in the medal count at the Commonwealth Games, with 22 gold, 15 silver, and 23 bronze medals for a total of 61 medals.

India finished with the fifth-best showing in Commonwealth Games history, winning a total of 101 medals when the games were staged at home in 2010.

Achieving 61 medals this time around is significant because shooting, India’s most successful discipline historically with 135 medals, was not featured in the games.
