India provides financial assistance to Afghanistan’s Transport Network
India will provide financial assistance of $2.87 million to Afghanistan for the refurbishment of 350 buses to help in strengthening the public transport system of capital Kabul. The assistance would be used to procure spare parts for the Milli Bus (government bus services) for refurbishment of 350 previously supplied buses under Indian assistance. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Acting Afghan Minister of Transport, Mohammad Hameed Tahmasi and Indian Ambassador to Afghanistan Manpreet Vohra. The 350 buses are expected to be operational by end of 2018.
