India is to set up a central foreign aid agency to prevent funds from being misused
and delays in aid delivery. India's aid commitments have soared in recent years as
the country seeks to improve its strategic, political and economic clout on the world
stage, especially as China extends its hand.
The agency will be called the Indian Agency for Partnership in Development.
The move has been welcomed by policymakers who say a central agency will halt leakages,
curb delays, slash operation costs and prevent projects being rushed through by individuals
misusing their discretionary powers. Furthermore, aid would no longer be driven by
territorial divisions and regional interests, making way for a cohesive aid strategy.
The agency will have to ensure quick decision-making and insulate aid from political
considerations if it is to deliver aid effectively. Experts say that India's legal
framework monitoring government procurement should be strengthened to boost accountability
and to prevent it from falling prey to corruption.
The creation of the aid agency, believed to be modelled on the US international development
agency, USAid, raises the question of whether India should be dishing out aid at
all when it still receives international aid and suffers from rampant poverty and
poor development. But supporters of India's foreign aid programme say aid helps the
country's domestic agenda indirectly by opening economic doors, ensuring regional
peace and boosting business opportunities in recipient countries.
