India receives $300 billion FDI

India receives $300 billion FDI
07 December 2016 Current Affairs: India crossed the $300 billion foreign direct investment (FDI) milestone between April 2000 and September 2016, firmly establishing its credentials as a safe investment destination in the world. 

Thirty three per cent of the FDI came through the Mauritius route, apparently because the investors wanted to take advantage of India's double taxation avoidance treaty with the island nation. 

India received $ 101.76 billion from Mauritius between April 2000 and September 2016. The cumulative FDI inflows during the period amounted to $ 310.26 billion. 

The inflows in the first half of the current financial year was $ 21.62 billion, according to data compiled by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion. 

The other big investors have been from Singapore, the US, UK and the Netherlands. 

Commenting on the $ 300 billion mark, industry bodies Ficci and CII have said that India is perceived as a safe and dynamic destination by global investors. 

Ficci said that the liberalisation of the FDI policy framework, major national development programmes such as Make in India, Digital India and Skill India, besides increasing competitiveness, have made India the preferred choice for investors globally. 

India's services sector topped the table, receiving 18 per cent of the cumulative equity FDI inflows followed by construction development, computer software & hardware, telecommunication and automobile. 

According to the World Investment Report 2016, global FDI flows rose by 38 per cent to $ 1.76 trillion, the highest level since the global economic and financial crisis began in 2008. However, they still remain some 10 per cent short of the 2007 peak. 

The report added that elevated geopolitical risks and regional tensions could further amplify the expected downturn.
