Indian Economy: A journey of last 65 years  

Foreign Direct Investment in India
As the third-largest economy in the world in PPP terms, India is a preferred destination for FDI. During the year 2011, FDI inflow into India stood at USD 36.5 billion, 51.1 percent higher than 2010 figure of USD 24.15 billion.

India has strengths in telecommunication, information technology and other significant areas such as auto components, chemicals, apparels, pharmaceuticals, and jewellery. Despite a surge in foreign investments, rigid FDI policies were a significant hindrance.

However, due to positive economic reforms aimed at deregulating the economy and stimulating foreign investment, India has positioned itself as one of the front-runners of the rapidly growing Asia-Pacific region.

During 2000–10, the country attracted USD 178 billion as FDI.
