During my visit, I announced a new UK three-year development programme of £825 million. This will support the health and education sectors, with a particular focus on bringing education to a greater proportion of Indians, regardless of caste. In addition, I took part in an event on women's empowerment where I discussed among other issues the impact of caste and discrimination in Indian society.
