Coming Soon: Afghan civil servants in Delhi's corridors of power

NEXT time, you notice an Afghan officer occupying a babu’s chair in a government of India ministry, just don’t get surprised. According to an MoU signed between the two countries on Monday, Afghan civil servants would come on deputation to India for on-the-job training in government ministries.
What’s is also planned is to arrange exposure visits of Afghan civil servants to Indian government ministries and undertake short term international training of Afghan civil servants at the training institutes of government of India and other institutions in India.
A number of Indian civil servants would have a chance to explore the turbulent land as India would assist in setting up and strengthening training institutes of Afghanistan, and also share its publications, technical know-how etc. with them. The technical support includes areas such as national accounts, survey designing and planning, presentation of data, training of trainers, development of official statistics in areas like education, health, environment, births, deaths, etc.
