Increase in FDI Cap in Some Sectors
FDI policy is reviewed on an ongoing basis, with a view to making it more investor friendly. Significant changes are made in the FDI policy regime, from time to time, to ensure that India remains increasingly attractive and investor-friendly. Government plays an active role in investment promotion, through dissemination of information on the investment climate and opportunities in India and by advising prospective investors about investment policies and procedures and opportunities.
FDI up to 100% is allowed on the automatic route in most sectors/activities subject to applicable laws/ regulations; security and other conditionalities. Further, in various sectors, it is allowed up to the different limits, varying from 20% to 100%, subject to prescribed conditions. The detailed information is available in â€˜Consolidated FDI Policy Circular of 2015â€™ at this Departmentâ€™s website (www.dipp.nic.in).
