UK to halt state financial assistance to India in 2015 and will make no new cash commitments before then, says minister

All financial assistance from the UK to India will end from 2015, the international development secretary, Justine Greening, has announced.

Britain is to make no new financial aid commitments to India, and will save about £200m by 2015.

Greening, who took responsibility for Britain's aid budget in September, said programmes already under way would be completed as planned but no new initiatives would be signed off.
