Abstract:

Investment is an important concept for growth and prosperity of any economy. Domestic investment and foreign investment both are equally important. Domestic investment may lead to the creation of domestic savings, consumption and employment whereas foreign investment can decrease the gap in domestic saving. The study was undertaken with the objective to examine the trends and patterns of foreign direct investment in India. The descriptive design had been adopted for the study purpose using secondary data. Statistical tools such as Coefficient of variation (C.V), average, and percentage and distribution theory were applied to achieve the results. The data was taken for the period of 2001 to 2015. The results of the study highlighted the inflow of FDI Sector wise, Country wise and RBI region wise in India during the study period. Among all the top sectors in India, investments in service sector were more from FDI inflow which is 28% as compared to other sectors. Mauritius was having less coefficient of variation near to 24% which shows that Mauritius was the most consistent country investing in India as compared to other countries. It was revealed that Hyderabad was one among those RBI regional offices to be trusted for expanding FDI in India.
