Foreign Direct Investment Regulations in India
India's foreign trade policy has been formulated with a view to invite and encourage Foreign Direct Investment in India (FDI). Indian economy has been consistently showing its commitment in walking the path of liberalization since it opened its doors to the world in 1991.
Despite several changes in government and political ideaologies, one thing has remained consistent - India's commitment to reducing trade barriers and making it easier for foreign companies to be a part of the economy.
To that end, besides relaxing FDI norms over time, the government has also relaxed its foreign exchange control policies and effectively removed all restrictions on the flow of foreign money in and out of India and made the India Rupee a fully convertible currency. Foreign companies can also buy properties in India required for their operations.
Additionally, the Indian government has encouraged potential investors through fiscal and non-fiscal advantages like subsidies, exemptions, various incentives and tax holiday. The advantages vary from state to state and sector to sector.
