"UK has no cap on visas for students from India or anywhere else. All are treated same. Whoever comes will join almost half a million international students who come in the UK to access word-class education in the world-class universities," he said.
UK's visa policy requires that students return home after they have completed their courses. This move has led to 50 percent fall in the number of Indian students enrolling in British Universities.
According to recent study, number of visa issued to Indian nationals have fallen drastically.
Asquith also said that "UK is participating in several initiatives of the Indian government to promote skill development."
He further added "The UK is already investing and supporting about 75 start-up businesses and they provided access to financial services to women in India. British companies, on an average, are spending 7 per cent of their revenues on training employees in India and are also creating more opportunities for women. "
