Last year the Kiwi team lost in the semifinals 2-1 to Indonesia having had a match point to go up to the next group.
The New Zealand team is expected to leave for New Delhi on Saturday 16 April. The tournament starts Tuesday 19 through until Sunday 24 April.
The eight nations in Group 1 are Australia, China PR
, Chinese Taipei, India, Kazakhstan, Korea, New Zealand and Singapore.
A round robin format of two groups of four will be played with the two top sides going through to the semis and the two bottom sides from each group playing off to remain in Group 1.
