Foreign Investment in India

... Summary The article “Indian firms' foreign ownership at its peak” talks about foreign ownership in listed Indian firms. According to the analysts the foreign ownership has reached its peak and is expected to rise further as corporate profitability grows. However, factors such as high inflation and corruption may result in overseas investors being careful with their actions. As a result of year 2010, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) shareholding rose to the highest level since Indian markets opened up to foreign investment in 1993. In addition, strong corporate earnings had made India the top investment destination in 2010. As India is the second fastest growing major economy in the world after China, it is likely to attract higher investments in the future. Although the growth potential outlook for India remains positive, it is susceptible to correction due to is top priced trading compared to other markets. The threat of high inflation and rising crude prices resulting in a slow-down of growth and corporate profitability has affected the foreign investors action. The moderation in foreign flows has led to a decline in stock prices. An increase in FII shareholding was detected in sectors, such as consumer goods, pharma, metals, large software firms and telecom service providers. In banking and financial industry, however, the FIIs stakes were lowered as well as in most construction firms. The trend in foreign inflows in the future will depend......

Foreign Direct Investment in India

...Foreign Direct Investment in India India is the largest democracy and is fourth largest economy (in terms of purchasing power parity) in the world. India with its consistent growth performance and abundant high-skilled manpower provides enormous opportunity for investment, both domestic and foreign. Investment in India can be made both by non-resident as well as resident Indian entities. Any non-resident investing in an Indian company is Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The Government embarked upon major economic reforms since mid-1991 with a view to integrate with the world economy, and to emerge as a significant player in the globalization process. Reforms undertaken include decontrol of industries from the stringent regulatory process; simplification of investment procedures, promotion of foreign direct investment (FDI), liberalisation of exchange control, rationalization of taxes and public sector divestment. The FDI policy was liberalized progressively through review of the policy on an ongoing basis and allowing FDI in more industries under the automatic route. A number of studies in the recent past have highlighted on growing attractiveness of India as an investment destination. According to UNCTAD’s World Investment Report 2007, India is the second most attractive investment destination for FDI for 2007-09. India has one of the most liberal and transparent policies on FDI among the emerging economies. FDI up to 100 percent is allowed under automatic route in all...

Insurance Sector in India: Challenges and Opportunities

...INSURANCE SECTOR IN INDIA : OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES Abstract: Insurance sector in India is one of the booming sectors of the economy and is growing at the rate of 15-20 percent per annum. Together with banking services, it contributes to about 7 per cent to the country's GDP. Government made a paradigm shift in the economic policy by adopting the process of liberalization, privatization and globalization at the end of previous decade. Consequently, Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) has been established under IRDA Act, 1999 to regulate the insurance business in the country. As a result, private sector has been allowed entry both in general and life insurance sector in India or liberalized in March 2000 with the passage of the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) Bill. This allowed foreign players to enter the market with some limits on direct foreign ownership. There is a 26 percent equity cap for foreign partners in an insurance company and now it has increase limit to 49 percent. The opening up of the insurance sector has led to rapid growth of the sector. The potential for growth of insurance industry in India is immense as nearly 80 per cent of Indian population is without life insurance cover while health insurance and non-life insurance continues to be well below international standards. The insurance sector in India has come up with a full circle from being an open competitive market to......

Investment Opportunities in Cyprus 2013

...Foreign Investment Opportunities in Cyprus Author: <Student> Report Date: 10/4/2013 Executive Overview: Foreword: New business investment recommendations in this report are based on medium - longer term opportunities (2 – 10 years) on the assumption that the current economic and political crisis affecting the general business and banking environment with restrictions on the free flow of capital funds into and out of Cyprus, make it impractical to execute any short term investments in this country. The short term economic outlook looks uncertain and highly volatile. Cyprus faces an extremely challenging period requiring a major restructuring of its financial services industry. Whilst in theory, the Cypriot Banking industry’s exposure to Greek government debt has been factored into the existing EU bailout calculations, any further crisis in the Greek economy and potential for foreign deposits with drawls once the current capital transfer controls (blocks) are lifted, could lead to a new crisis in the Cypriot Banking sector which could require additional EU intervention and a further period of uncertainty and economic instability. The overall effect on its economy of the current Troika ((EU, ECB, IMF) bailout conditions is yet to be felt. Future GDP short term projections vary; the IMF and EU is talking optimistically of a fall of between 5 -10% , other analysts predicts falls as great as 15% this year and another 5% in 2014 with unemployment ranging from 13.7%......

India as Investment Destination

...true. Then in 1991, under the leadership of Shree PV Narasimha Rao, India embraced Liberalization and Globalization. Since then India has become a hub for various brands ranging from Panasonic and Suzuki to Sony, Mercedes, Audi and what not. Today, India, popularly known as the land of snake charmers in the West, is undergoing a massive transformation and charming the world with its 3D effect- Democracy, Demography and Demand. The world’s largest democracy went for election in mid 2014 and its resultant was a stable government giving hope to the fellow Indians to building a new nation and providing aspirations to the foreign investors about India as an investment destination Our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Damodar Modi has inarguably taken it upon himself to market India globally.

China and India Opportunities and Challenges

...6-4: China and India: Opportunities and Challenges Overtime, China and India have developed some capabilities, which have affected developed nations like U.S, Germany, Japan and so on. The rising capability that the two countries possess is as a result of their ability to assign their available resources (factor conditions) to specific productive areas to yield viable outcome. Rarely has the economic ascent of two still relatively poor nations been watched with such a mixture of awe, opportunism, and trepidation. The postwar era witnessed economic miracles in Japan and South Korea. But neither was populous enough to power worldwide growth or change the game in a complete spectrum of industries. China and India, by contrast, possess the weight and dynamism to transform the 21st century global economy. Never has the world seen the simultaneous, sustained takeoffs of two nations that together account for one-third of the planet’s population. For the past two decades, China has been growing at an astounding 9.5% a year, and India by 6%. Given their young populations, high savings, and the sheer amount of catching they still have to do, most economist figure China and India possess the fundamentals to keep growing in the 7% to 8% ranges for decades. (Cravens, 2013) Barring cataclysm, within three decades India should have vaulted over Germany as the world’s third-biggest economy. By mid-century, China should have overtaken the U.S as No. 1. By then, China and India could account......

E-Government in India: Opportunities and Challenges

...(2008). E-government in India: Opportunities and challenges, JOAAG, Vol. 3. No. 2 E-government in India: Opportunities and challenges Anil Monga1 Abstract Public administration, governed by bureaucratic structures built on rationale principles, that dominated the twentieth century, has failed to respond to the changing requirements of the present times. E-governance, which is a paradigm shift over the traditional approaches in public administration, means rendering of government services and information to the public using electronic means. This new paradigm has brought about a revolution in the quality of service delivered to the citizens. It has ushered in transparency in the governing process; saving of time due to provision of services through single window; simplification of procedures; better office and record management; reduction in corruption; and improved attitude, behavior and job handling capacity of the dealing personnel. The present study substantiates these theoretical assumptions about e-governance by analyzing some experiences at the local, state and federal levels of government in India.
