India is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and stands Seventh in drawing the highest Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) into the country. It ranks among the top 10 attractive destinations for inbound investments. The country offers an extensive marketplace for products and services of diverse sectors. Moreover, the regulatory environment for foreign investment has been considerably eased to make it more investor-friendly. Government is making constant efforts to increase the scope of foreign direct investment by opening new sectors for investment, increase the sectorial limit of already existing sectors and simplifying other provisions of the FDI policy. Therefore, FDI in India is considered to be very lucrative and secure. These are few of the major reasons for attracting huge Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in various sectors in India.
At present, the most desirable and enticing economic sectors of India to foreign companies are information technology, retail, catering and hospitality, education, infrastructure, real estate and construction, insurance, mining and minerals, power and energy, telecommunication, aviation, and many others.
