Some eighty Afghan cadets who have been graduated from various military academies in India were given a one-year breather in the form of learning the English Language.

The Afghan cadets who do not want to return to Taliban-run Afghanistan were previously provided with a six-month extension of visa and will now stay for one year more.

The young Afghans will be referred to three institutes in India and will be given accommodation as well as a monthly allowance to live on.

The issue had been a matter of discussion between the defense ministry and the Ministry of foreign affairs of India.

Since the Afghan cadets do not have a working visa, they are not allowed to work and earn money.

Afghan embassy based in India has appreciated the decision and termed it as a move of generosity.

Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has not commented on the issue of Afghan cadets in India but earlier they had asked the professional Afghans to return to the country.
