    Britain’s decision to stop giving development aid to India by 2015 marks a turning point in the former colonial power’s relations with New Delhi, and is raising questions about the global future of foreign aid in a fast-changing economic world order.

    U.S. aid to India, targeted toward clean energy, food security and health, has dropped 25 percent in recent years, from nearly $127 million in 2010 to a proposed $98.3 million in 2013.


    Now, let's discuss Pakistan's economic development on world stage, shall we?

    Aid is aid regardless its purpose.

    Last time I checked the calender it was still 2014 so great super duper India is still recieving aid from UK.

    So next time you guys post rants about aid, just check your own statistics.

    3.2 billion dollar in 2011 is huge!! Even Ethiopia recieved less than that.

    You mean this aid which was refused :

    British foreign aid: India tells Britain 'we don't need the peanuts you offer us' | Mail Online

    David Cameron was under intense pressure last night to slash the £1billion in aid Britain gives to India after the country said it no longer wanted the money.

    India's finance minister Pranab Mukherjee said the booming country should 'voluntarily' give up the £280million a year it receives from Britain.

    He told the Indian parliament: 'We do not require the aid. It is a peanut in our total development spending.'

    Pakistan needs seven percent growth rate for survival: FPCCI - thenews.com.pk

    Wonder where the aid to Pakistan is actually going?

    Hmm...

    KARACHI: Pakistan’s economic condition is on the verge of collapse and in order to survive, it needs a growth rate of seven percent over the next few years as against the present three to four percent, reads a paper prepared by the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI).

    FPCCI has presented this study to the government in response to the Vision 2025 prepared by the Planning Commission for the revival of the economy. The report has been prepared by the Research and Development wing of the premier trade body of the country and says that future challenges can only be safeguarded against if the country has a double digit growth rate.

    UK is not the only donor for India. Billions poured into the countries between 2009 - 2011 according to the WB stats I provided above.

    It was you who so cheerfully brought up the "increasing trend" of foreign aid to India. Demolishing such misconceptions is simple and amusing as well.

    Yes, economy needs to grow atleast 7% for next 5 years and we can do it.
    When Musharraf took over in 1999 the country was almost bankrupt. Reforms under his government saw the economy expand rapidly and grew at 8.4% few years later.

    With China's current FDI of around $7.5 billion per year for the next 5 years, things are looking good for Pakistan.
    KSA, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuweit and UAE all have signed MoD to invest billions under the curret government.

    EU's grant of GSP Plus status will boost our export within few years so 7% growth or more is likely to be a hieved in FY 2015/16 already.

    It won't change the fact that India is a recipient of huge foreign aid.

    Oh but it is changing and continue to.

    India’s foreign aid program catches up with its global ambitions | Asia

    Foreign aid provided by India :

    Citing its newfound economic strength, India revealed plans to reorient its positioning in the aid community just over a decade ago.

    “A stage has come in our development where we should now, firstly, review our dependence on external donors. Second, extend support to the national efforts of other developing countries,” said then-Indian Finance Minister Jaswant Singh in February 2003.

    Since then, India’s ambition of transitioning from aid recipient to donor hasn’t panned out completely. Despite its increasingly dismissive posture toward Western aid donors, the Indian government still receives billions of dollars in foreign aid money each year. In 2011, India’s official development assistance to gross national income ratio stood at 0.2 percent, on a par with Egypt and Angola and up from 0.1 percent in 2003.

    Yet even as India remains among the largest recipients of foreign aid, the country has come a long way toward bolstering its standing as an emerging donor. In its latest budget unveiled in February, the Indian government set aside nearly $1.3 billion for foreign assistance in 2013-14, a fourfold jump from 2003-04. Over the past four years, Indian foreign aid spending has grown annually by an average 32 percent.

    Now, while India is transitioning from being a major aid recipient to a major aid donor globally, what is Pakistan transitioning towards?

    You yourself are ignorant. Zakat is one that is paid as a religious obligation to state ( normally 2.5 percent of fixed assets) , "Khairat" seems to be better word here.

    Fananical aid? You mean fanatical aid as in exporting Jihadists? That seems plausible.
