India is rapidly emerging as a key destination for foreign investment. Both foreign direct investment (FDI) and foreign portfolio investment (FPI) have seen robust growth.  


FDI reached an all time high of US$ 56B in 2015-16, 6x more than the figure a decade ago.


Mauritius and Singapore are top FDI investors in India; this is due to tax regime. India has double tax avoidance treaties, and lower local tax rates in those countries mean that investors are routing FDI through them. Also, several investors prefer Singapore as a legal jurisdiction as well.


India has become an important destination for inbound FDI in a global context. In 2015, for ex, it was the seventh meaningful nation, behind the likes of USA, China, Brazil, Canada, UK and Germany. We are ignoring some of the other nations higher up on the list, like Ireland, Hong Kong, Switzerland etc, since these are routing destinations.


The report gives overview of trend in FDI, and the governing regime for FDI in India, including sectoral caps, procedure for setting up a company in India and so on.
