British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the sidelines of the G20 summit on September 09.
The UK and Indian governments have been in talks for a free trade agreement, but are yet to reach any conclusion.
Negotiations began in January 2022 and have already missed several political deadlines.
There is growing optimism that a free trade deal between India and United Kingdom could be concluded this year, as both sides agree on the broad contours of the pact, though the remaining topics to be discussed are some of the difficult.
