- In the intro, mention the takeover of the Afghanistan government by the Taliban and legal challenges in recognising it.
- In the body mention the two doctrines: effectiveness and legitimacy used for international recognition of the government. In India’s approach mention the need for developing policy that makes it possible to deal with Taliban as a de facto government of Afghanistan.
- Conclude by mentioning that none of the two doctrines is legally binding, so Russia and China can recognize the Taliban government based on effectiveness which other countries can deny based on legitimacy doctrine.
