During his visit to Mumbai, Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg launched a new awards programme for individuals whose outstanding achievements have strengthened relations between the UK and India.
The awards are dedicated to Dadabhai Naoroji, the first Asian MP in the UK.
Liberal Democrat Business Secretary Vince Cable is calling on business, unions and individuals to help identify and close potential loopholes in plans to ban the use of exclusivity clauses in zero hours contracts.
Exclusivity clauses prevent workers on zero hours contracts from taking work elsewhere even when their employer provides no work.
The government is launching a consultation to find out whether a minority of unscrupulous employers may attempt to circumvent the ban by offering contracts which could guarantee just one hour of work.
