About Invest India

Since the initiation of liberalization measures in 1991,there has been a constant effort to make India an attractive destination for foreign investment and simplify the procedures for the investor. Today Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is allowed almost in all sectors and in most of the cases, through the automatic route. India has received more than US$ 150 billion worth of FDI since 1991.
Globally, India is one of the most preferred destinations for foreign investment, however due to the heterogeneous nature of the Indian market, investors do find difficulty in finding clear answers to queries and also delays in getting their investments to fructify speedily.
It is with this view that Invest India, a Joint Venture Company (Not for Profit Company) between Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP) - Ministry of Commerce and Industry - Government of India, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and Various State Governments has been set up. Invest India is responsible for promoting and facilitating Investments to India. The shareholding currently is 51% FICCI and 49% DIPP. Subsequently DIPP will dilute its equity to include all State Governments.
Invest India shall act as a first reference point for investors. Invest India shall also be a facilitator and partner offering handholding services to the investors to keep them to speedily fructify their investment plans.
