Iran Seeks India’s Support for HIV Test

Iran needs a high-level business allocation from India to test for HIV before subjecting visas, angering New Delhi as such an insist is seen as biased and politically mistaken. Most nations have done away with this necessity and India too finished obligatory HIV testing for visa applicants more than a decade ago. The 97-member delegation has been put jointly by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), and has 68 executive director-rank officials from firms such as Oswal, Metro Tyres, Luminous Power, Kohinoor Foods, and RP Goenka. The group is planned to visit Tehran from December 15 to 17 to platform Indian products and for a buyer-seller meet in Isfahan on December 19 on the invitation of the Tehran Chamber of Commerce and Iran Chamber of Commerce. Members of the delegation have also been inquired to test for Hepatitis C and Tuberculosis, all for the first time, sources said, forcing New Delhi to lift the issue through diplomatic channels with Iranian authorities. The Indian government, through a November 22, 2002 order, had publicized a change in policy, ending all binding HIV testing for foreign-born residents and visa applicants, including foreign students. While no specific reason has been agreed for this shift by Iran, India sees this as barriers being shaped and considers it a distressing sign. New Delhi feels that hurdles such as these are investigative of why business ties don't seem to take off although the best of intentions. The main objective of the delegation is to augment India's exports to Iran, which registered a fall of 3.77 per cent during 2011-12, chiefly due to problems with banking channels. Although latest figures are not accessible, they are likely to have hollow further.
