Working Group on Foreign Investment in India

This report examines foreign investment law and capital flow management pol- icy as it is manifested in the norms, institutions and processes of law. The Group examined the structure of regulation and the ways in which practices, institutions, and procedures inflect and shape these policy decisions. The report also offers, alongside an economic policy piece contextualising these flows in relation to the Indian and global economy, close scrutiny of the structures and incentives created by the law in the main areas of our mandate; capital flows management regulations with regard to listed and unlisted equity, corporate and government securities regulation and derivatives trading. The focus of the Group has been to identify procedures and practices which can help avoid uncertainty, delay or unequal treatment and to recommend measures which could simplify the portfolio investment environment; at the same time laying a strong emphasis on KYC norms.
