6/14/13 – Thirty-eight officers from the Indian Revenue Service recently completed a two-week training program on tax policy and administration at the Duke Center for International Development (DCID).
“The course is extremely informative and interesting,” said Sanjeet Singh, who participated in the program. “It provides not only important skills, but also a variety of new perspectives.”
The program begins with three weeks of advance training at the Management and Development Institute in Gurgaon, India, which is taught by their faculty. The rest of the course is taught by Duke faculty in conjunction with experts from the Internal Revenue Service, the North Carolina Department of Revenue and the World Bank. The course concludes with a trip to Washington, D.C., to visit with officials from the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and Internal Revenue Service.
DCID faculty has trained over 160 Indian Revenue Service officers in its custom programs and expects to train a total of more than 400 over the next three years.
