Net new foreign direct investment into India has risen very rapidly in recent years, with FDI reaching a new record level of US$ 85 billion in the 2021-22 fiscal year, after inflows of US$ 82 billion in the previous 2020-21 fiscal year. Although FDI inflows moderated to US$ 71 billion in the 2022-23 fiscal year, this compares with FDI inflows of just USD 4 billion in the 2003-04 fiscal year. The sustained large FDI inflows over the past decade have helped to reduce India’s external account vulnerability and have contributed to boost India’s foreign exchange reserves. A key contributor to strong FDI inflows over the past decade has been technology related FDI, which has become an important source of investment. The Computer Software and Hardware sector was the largest recipient of foreign direct investment equity inflows in the 2021-22 fiscal year, at around 25% of the total inflows. More details
