The Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999 (FEMA) is India’s main legislation governing inbound and outbound investments. The magnitude and complexity of the FEMA needs to be understood before playing in Indian financial markets. The Act relaxed foreign exchange restrictions, resulting in significant flow of investments into India over the years and making the country one of the most lucrative FDI destinations in the world. It also paved the way for Indian businesses to invest aggressively overseas.

Rising inbound and outbound investments make it crucial to understand the regulations that govern capital inflows and outflows. All transactions involving foreign exchange fall under the purview of the FEMA read with the FDI policy. The new consolidated FDI policy issued by the government of India and certain significant changes made thereafter are expected to attract more FDI inflows into India.
