India as the fastest developing economy has been very keen in attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). This increase in FDI witnessed by India during the past few decades, was well supported by major economic reforms taken up in the 1990s. The major advantages in attracting FDI are: India gets advanced technology and developed economies’ managerial expertise; Indian employees get well-trained in the latest technology; and India gets to avail global production facilities and large markets.
