India is one of the largest democracies in the world and is the most dominant emerging market which is growing at a phenomenal rate. With a population of over 1.3 billion and a rapidly growing Gross Domestic Product, India has become one of the world’s most dynamic and attractive marketplaces, establishing itself as a fertile ground for inbound and outbound foreign direct investment (FDI). There has been significant changes to the FDI policies in various sectors such as: infrastructure and construction, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, mining and energy, telecom, oil and gas, technology, automobile, insurance and aviation.
