Investment in India

The Indian Government is committed in its efforts to maintain healthy growth rate and provide a conducive policy environment to the enterprises, both public and private, to invest and grow their business in the country.

 

India – with its consistent growth performance and abundant, skilled manpower provides enormous opportunities for investments. India provides a liberal, attractive, and investor-friendly investment climate.

 

India has witnessed a number of success stories – both Indian and multinational firms have registered higher profits, increased turnover and higher sales over the years. This has induced them to reinvest profits and inject fresh capital into their processes in order to reap the benefits of the Indian growth story.

 

The sectors attracting the highest FDI equity inflows during 2008-2009 have been the Services Sector (US$ 5.3 billion), Computer Hardware and Software (US$ 1.7 billion), Telecommunications (US$ 2.5 billion), Housing and Real Estate (US$ 2.6 billion), Construction Activities (US$ 2 billion) and Automobile Industry (US$ 1.2 billion) etc.

 

Investments have been made by Corporates across the board and almost all sectors have seen an inflow of funds. Global players such as Daimler Chrysler, General Motors, Ford, LG Electronics, Samsung, Sony, Amway, Tupperware, Pepsico, McDonald’s, IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, Aviva, Nortel and Nokia among others have benefited from their operations in India and have made expansion plans for the country. The companies plan to expand by way of product diversification, setting up manufacturing base in India, increasing the existing production capacity, establishing research centres in India, etc.
