Mr. David Cameron visits India

To kick start this he laid down his first offer,which was to relax visa norms for investors such as a same-day visa service to those who want to go to the UK and invest. Also make a student-friendly policy whereby there would be no limit on the number of Indian students who could come and study in universities there and also no cap on the length of time they could stay and work.

The UK is all set to make attractive offers to woo the Indian investors. To begin with , British Prime Minister David Cameron said that he wants to position his country as the gateway of Europe for Indian companies intending to do business there.

He emphasized on the importance of Vodafone’s investments and said that it is paying taxes and contributing to India. The company as a whole also has a huge role to play in creating jobs.

His three day visit assumed significance at a time when large British companies like Vodafone (with tax liability of Rs. 11,200 crore in India) and Shell are vehemently contesting tax claims by Indian revenue authorities.However the solutions are still being found , the tax system has to be fair to all so as to protect the businesses from getting damaged.

Mr Cameron was quoted talking about unleashing India’s potential along the 1,000-km stretch from Mumbai to Bangalore, transforming lives and putting British businesses in a prime position to secure valuable commercial deals by lending experts in finance, architecture and planning to India.

Mr. Cameron insisted on the future relationship of the two countries while throwing light on the British company Unilever and its 50 million euro investment to set up a deodorant manufacturing factory at Champion in Maharashtra.

This corridor project development according to him would generate investment projects worth up to $25 billion.

On the occasion of Mr. Cameron’s visit, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) and Transport for London (TfL), by which the latter will help the former to implement and operationalise its plans of a 150-km-long metro network in Mumbai Metropolitan Region.

On the whole, this truly was a visit tying the knot for a better future.

The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like). Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
