The 'Great Game' refers to the historical rivalry between Tsarist Russia and the British Empire in Indian-subcontinent and Central Asia. During 19th and 20th years the Central Asia and Indian-subcontinent was a turf of the power game between the historically known Empires British and Tsarist Russia. In 19th Russia got control of whole Central Asia till the 1990s, by this, the old Great game comes into an end. After the disintegration of USSR, all countries of the world established diplomatic relations with the Republics of Central Asia, but it was only after US intervention in Afghanistan that all countries of the world show their interest in making good relations with these Republics. Therefore, after the 9/11 event new great game started between regional and world powers in the region. The main objective of this study is to analyze the role of India in Central Asia after the US intervention in Afghanistan after 9/11 and subsequent withdrawal in 2021.
