Afghan students who have scholarships in India complained that they are struggling with various problems.
They said that despite several meetings with the Afghan embassy in Delhi, their problems have not been addressed.
“We call on those in charge to address our main problems of visas, regular flights, and educational scholarships,” said an Afghan student in India.
“We have had many negotiations with the Afghanistan embassy and its officials. They have not given us back any satisfying feedback,” said Ishaq Sarwari, an Afghan student in India.
“Since we graduated, we have been facing visa problems. Our visas have expired and when your visas are invalid, the institute doesn’t give you educational documents,” said Ezatullah Nadim, an Afghan student in India.
The analysts meanwhile said that if the interim Afghan government improves its relations with India, many problems of the Afghan citizens in India, including the visas, will be solved.
“We should solve these issues through diplomatic relations, negotiations and talk. As the citizens are in India, there should be talk with the country’s embassy and foreign ministry,” said Javid Momand, an university instructor.
Earlier, Afghan students complained that the Indian government does not provide them visas and that they are unable to attend their classes in India.
