Introduction

India and Afghanistan have a strong relationship based on historical and cultural links. India has played a significant role in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Afghanistan. Democracy and development are the key instruments to ensure that Afghanistan becomes a source of regional stability. This has been reflected in the Strategic Partnership Agreement, signed between Afghanistan and India in 2011, which reinforced the strong, vibrant and multi-faceted relations between the two countries and at the same time formalized a framework for cooperation in various areas between the two countries: political & security cooperation; trade & economic cooperation; capacity development and education; and social, cultural, civil society & people-to-people relations. The commitment is also reflected in the extensive developmental assistance programme, which now stands at around US $2 billion, making India among the largest bilateral donor in Afghanistan. This, by any reckoning, is a substantial amount for a non-traditional donor like India.

31 December, 2021

Introduction

  • The government unveiled a four-year National Monetisation Pipeline (NMP) worth an estimated Rs 6 lakh crore.

  • The NMP has been announced to provide a clear framework for monetisation and give potential investors a ready list of assets to generate investment interest.
  • The government has stressed that these are Brownfield assets, which have been “de-risked” from execution risks, and therefore should encourage private investment.
