Routes of Foreign Investment in India: Simplifying the Labyrinth for Foreign Investors

In the past year, India has seen an influx of foreign investment surpassing its otherwise preferred neighbor China as a recipient of foreign investment. To accommodate this steady inflow,
Indian legislators have made significant modifications to the various laws that govern routes of foreign investment that a foreign investor can access when investing in India.

The question that arises is – which route for foreign investment to choose? The intent of this article is to provide a snapshot of the investment routes available to foreign investors desirous of investing in India and the key considerations to bear in mind.
