India Covid: Opposition calls for full national lockdown

Coronavirus With 3,780 deaths India reports highest single day fatality count logs 3.8 lakh cases

The announcement came after Johnson held a virtual meeting with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi - Johnson's planned trip to India was called off because of the COVID-19 situation. That deal will provide enhanced employment prospects for 3,000 young Indian professionals annually, in return for India agreeing to take back any of its citizens living illegally in the UK.

The United Kingdom and India have announced one billion UK pounds ($1.39bn) of private-sector investment and have committed to seeking a free trade deal. "They agreed to increase maritime co-operation, inviting the UK's Liaison Officer to India's Information Fusion Centre, establishing an annual India-UK Maritime Dialogue and strengthening operational coordination", said the joint statement.

"Without drastic measures to bolster the health system to deal with this onslaught, decreased social mixing, and increased effective face mask use, the situation now looks quite grim for India", said an updated country-specific policy briefing from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), a widely regarded independent research wing of the University of Washington based in Seattle. BOC Ltd has donated 5,000 empty oxygen cylinders, the first of which were transferred to Chennai this morning by the Indian Air Force.

Both the countries have also chose to launch formal negotiations to seal a Free Trade Agreement (FTA), which the two governments say would help in doubling the bilateral trade, at present valued at $15 billion, over the next 10 years. I will work tirelessly with our Indian friends and partners in the public and private sector to fulfil our leaders' ambition.

In return, Chakravorty stated that the United Kingdom had agreed to "open up the fisheries sector for more Indian players, facilitate more opportunities for nurses, recognise Indian seafarers certificates and also enter into a joint dialogue on the Social Security Agreement".

The ETP also commits both sides to addressing immediate market access barriers as well as continuing to seek further opportunities as we negotiate an FTA, benefitting businesses and consumers in both countries.

British exports to India worth more than £446 million.

£200 million of these deals will support low carbon growth.

The investments are expected to create more than 6,000 jobs.

Last week the Prime Minister spoke to the CEOs of leading Indian technology firms and prominent investors Infosys and HCL.
