The UK-India Infrastructure Technical Co-Operation Facility is a programme which has focused on infrastructure for transportation, telecommunication, water supply and sanitation, urban infrastructure and emerging areas like renewable energy. There have been no projects relating to agriculture or agri-infrastructure under this programme. We recognise the interest in the Indian government's agricultural reform programme, and we respect India's democratic process, which includes the ability to debate and peacefully protest.
