Foreign direct investment (FDI) in equity in India rose 19 per cent year-on-year last fiscal to a record $59.6 billion despite the onslaught of the pandemic. However, such inflows, which had jumped as much as 40 per cent between April and December, seem to have lost some momentum in the March quarter.
The gross FDI inflows, which include FDI in equity, reinvested earnings, the equity capital of unincorporated bodies and other capital, rose 10 per cent year-on-year to an all-time high of $81.7 billion in FY21, showed the data released by the commerce and industry ministry on Monday. The gross FDI, too, had risen by a healthy 22 per cent up to December last fiscal before easing in the March quarter.
Singapore remained the top FDI source, accounting for 29 per cent of the inflows last fiscal, followed by the US (23 per cent) and Mauritius (9 per cent). —FE
