India offers fully funded courses to Commonwealth citizens

India is offering Commonwealth citizens fully funded training courses across a range of areas, including rural development, IT, telecommunications and renewable energy, in association with the Commonwealth Secretariat.
•    The courses are sponsored by the Indian government and delivered by Indian institutions through the Indian Technical and Economic (ITEC) programme, the Commonwealth Secretariat here said.
•    ITEC is part of the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Third Country Training Programme, which aims to build capacity in member countries by providing specialist training in key areas of development work.
•    This is a fantastic opportunity for those in the public and private sectors, as well those who work with NGOs. 
•    India has allocated 30 places for participants from Commonwealth member states for the 2016-2017 program
•    In general, a Commonwealth citizen is a person who has that status under British nationality law and may enjoy some privileges in the United Kingdom and less commonly, other Commonwealth countries. 
•    Each country can determine what special rights, if any, are accorded to non-nationals who are Commonwealth citizens. 
•    The term is largely confined to British nationality law and is not used in many other Commonwealth countries such as Australia.
