The FDI (Foreign Direct Investment) is a type of investment that involves the injection of foreign funds into an enterprise that operates in a different country of origin from the investor. FDI play an extraordinary and growing role in global business. It can provide a firm with new markets and marketing channels, cheaper production facilities, access to new technology, products, skill and financing.
  • Broadly, foreign direct investment includes "mergers and acquisitions, building new facilities, reinvesting profits earned from overseas operations and infra company loans". In a narrow sense, foreign direct investment refers just to building new facilities. 
  • FDI occurs when a company invests in a business that is located in another country and it is investing not less than 10% of shares belonging to the foreign company. It is a non-debt capital flow.
  • If the investment is less than 10% shares then it is called FII (Foreign Institutional Investment).
  • Foreign portfolio investment occurs, when foreign investment in the form of shares, equities and bonds, is made by a foreign company. 
  • Present policy on FDI is liberal and almost in every sector 100% FDI through automatic route has been allowed except
    • retail trading
    • lottery business
    • gambling and betting
    • chit fund business, nidhi company
    • real estate business
    • Manufacturing of cigars and tobacco products
    • activities / sectors not opened to private sector, viz railways and atomic energy.

FDI in Retail

  • In January 2012, India aproved reforms for single-brand stores welcoming anyone in the world to innovate in Indian retail market with 100% ownership, but imposed the requirement that the single brand retailer source 30 per cent of its goods from India.
  • In December 2012, the Central Government of India allowed 51% FDI in multi brand retail in India. 

Latest updates about FDI

  • Since, 20th May 2011, FDI in Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) has been allowed.
  • The Government has constituted a four-member committee on 14th March 2013, headed by Economic Affairs Secretary Arvind Mayaram for giving clear definitions to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Foreign Institutional Investment (FII), with an aim to remove ambiguity over the two types of foreign investments.
  • To revive flagging growth, the Union Budget 2014-15 raised the FDI cap in defense and insurance sectors to 49% from the present 26%.   
  • The government on 27th August 2014, notified the liberalized foreign direct investment (FDI) norms for the Railways, permitting 100% FDI through automatic route in several areas, including high speed trains.
