Since independence India has not been in a better position to hold a friendly dialogue with a 'genuine' Afghan government. Taliban or its derivative is a reality, which will govern Afghanistan in foreseeable future. Taking lead in engaging with them might be a better option than waiting.
Is there a need to even look into the time tested and proven structure? Or is it that MoD has no work to do, hence planning to find frivolous and unwarranted work to make their existence valid? Any change for the sake of change is a retrograde step, always and every time.
