The pair have angered Indian fans by failing to turn out for a futsal tournament in which they billed as the star attractions.
The Hindu newspaper said the pair were “understood to be 'tired'" on their arrival in Bangalore for the event on Tuesday.
Scholes, 42, was meant to be captain of the Bangalore team and Giggs, 43, for Mumbai in the Premier Futsal tournament.
Scholes played in the Mumbai leg of the tournament on Saturday.
But the pair were not even on the bench for the first game in Bangalore and fans were not impressed.
The Sun reports with the tickets priced as high as £110, including a “meet and greet session with the legends", disgruntled fans were quick to dismiss the event as a money-making exercise.
