The Government of India had a pronounced intelligence interest, concentrating on Afghanistan’s internal and external affairs and trans-frontier tribes and personalities. All the works were classified “Secret,” “Confidential,” or “For Official Use Only,” and were subject to strict rules of custody. The collection in the India Office Records at the British Library is unique in its breadth and accessibility.

This collection is also included in the British Intelligence on Afghanistan and Its Frontiers, c. 1888-1946 collection.
