Georgia (Oct 27, 2011) — An elite group of 140 public administrators from India will be attending a training program from Nov. 6 -11 in Atlanta hosted by the India China America Institute and the Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University. The Indian Revenue Service’s deputy commissioners ––  selected through a rigorous process from a pool of 300,000 to 500,000 applicants annually –– will receive training in tax theory and policy, transfer pricing, cross-border taxation and US-India tax treaties. They will also be exposed to U.S. federal and state tax policies and procedures, whistle blower program, game theory and economics.

“This is the first such program hosted by the India China America Institute and the Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University,” said Govind Hariharan, executive director of the India China America Institute, which is housed at the Coles College of Business. “It is an honor to be chosen to train these officers, who are part of the select cadre that will lead implementation of tax policies in India. As we grow the institute, we expect to offer a variety of programs for corporate executives and civil servants from India, China and the U.S.”
