David Cameron has urged the Indian government to cut "regulation and red tape" in a bid to encourage more trade and investment involving UK businesses.


The prime minister said India "can be a difficult country to do business in" but insisted he wanted the UK to become India's economic "partner of choice".


He wanted to see UK firms playing a bigger role in a "more open, more flexible" Indian economy.


The PM has also outlined a same-day visa scheme to make the process easier for India's business community.
