Technical Cooperation Scheme (TCS) of Colombo Plan
Another cooperation programme of India, the Technical Cooperation Scheme of Colombo Plan, was started in 1950 with a view to providing technical assistance to neighbouring Colombo Plan countries. Through this Scheme, India provides comprehensive and integrated training to participants from Asian member countries of Colombo Plan with the purpose of assisting them to enhance their administrative and technical capabilities through human resource development. The Ministry of External Affairs, India, has been entrusted with the administration of the TCS of Colombo Plan since April 2010. Under this Scheme, India offers 500 slots (in total to all the Colombo Plan member countries) for training in India at 26 centres of learning covering diverse disciplines keeping in mind the needs of the Colombo Plan countries.
