The UK prime minister, in India for her first trade visit since entering Downing Street, is seeking Indian backing for a potential trade deal after Brexit. The thorny issue of immigration and visas has hung over the talks, given that these will be a key demand from India in return.

India has struggled for nine years to agree a trade deal with the EU, in part because of Delhi’s demand for 80,000 work visas. It refused to have the number split into country-by-country quotas, raising concerns that a large part of the visas would have been for the UK.

Narendra Modi has been sworn in as India 's new prime minister in a ceremony in the forecourt of the presidential palace in Delhi. The two nuclear-armed rivals have fought three wars in the past 60 years, and Mr Modi 's BJP party advocates a tough stance on Pakistan.

Earlier on Monday, Mr Modi gave a heavy hint during a speech at the India-UK Tech Summit that he wanted to see more Indian students going to study in the UK. There has been a steep fall in numbers in recent years. “Education is vital for our students and will define our engagement in a shared future,” he told delegates at the Taj Palace hotel. “We must therefore encourage greater mobility and participation of young people in education and research opportunities.”

The British government announced some limited measures to help wealthy Indians to get special treatment at the point of entering the UK through a “world-class visa service” known as the Great Club. Other business travellers will be allowed to forgo filling in a landing card and to use the electronic passport gates.

“India now has one of the best UK visa services in the world, with more application points than any other country, and the only country where it is possible to get a same-day visa,” she said.

“That happened because we listened to what businesses were saying. And we are still listening — listening to the fact that so many people from India want to bring their ideas, skills and business to Britain, for the good of your economy and ours.”

Nonetheless, the prime minister made it clear earlier that she had no plans for a fundamental rethink of Britain’s approach to Indian immigration, saying that the vast majority of applications were already accepted.

“We have, I believe, a good system.”
