Neighboring nations FDI : govt tightens norms

In a major change in its foreign direct investment (FDI) policy, India has brought in stricter measures to curb the 'opportunistic takeover' of Indian companies due to the current Covid-19 pandemic by firms in neighbouring countries, including China.

According to the Press Note 3 issued by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, the government has said that an entity of a country which shares a land border with India can invest only after receiving government approval.

Recently China's Central Bank has purchased one percent stake in housing major HDFC through open market operations.
