A group of 20 officials from Nepal's Finance Ministry on Monday joined a special training programme at New Delhi-based Institute of Government Accounts and Finance (INGAF) to enhance their skills in e-payment system, accounting, internal audit and fiscal responsibility, Indian officials here said.
This is the second group of Nepalese officials to join the training session, which is a part of the Nepal-India Economic Cooperation Programme, the Indian Embassy here said.
The 'Global Perspectives on Public Financial Management' course, which aims at providing special training to 62 Nepalese officials on public finance management, is being held in three batches with 20 officials being trained in New Delhi from January 14.
The first group has successfully completed their 10-day training on January 24.
The programme is being held under the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme of the Ministry of External Affairs.
The course will enhance the capabilities of the Nepalese officials in global practices dealing with e-payment system, accounting and cash management, public borrowing system, accounting of foreign loans/grants and repayments, pension payment system, internal audit, fiscal responsibility and budget management, the embassy said.
