UK to end financial aid to India by 2015

The UK is to end financial aid to India by 2015, International Development Secretary Justine Greening has said.

Support worth about £200m ($319m) will be phased out between now and 2015 and the UK's focus will then shift to offering technical assistance.

Ms Greening said the move, which will be popular with Tory MPs, reflected India's successful transition to becoming a key part of the global economy.
