That is a Russian van, RAF- 977 (Riga Autobus Factory) once often seen in India. These were brought into India by Russian Embassies and Consulates. Otherwise rarely seen as these were not marketed anywhere outside Russia. Many had a ladder mounted at the rear to enable one to climb up to the roof and tie the luggage. My mechanic in those days, around 1978 onward used to fix Russian consulate cars and had a number of them coming to him.
