RECOMMENDATIONS
The government should provide additional incentives to foreign investors to invest in states where the level of FDI inflows is quite low. Government should ensure the equitable distribution of inflows among states and must give more freedom to states, so that they can attract inflows at their own level. Government must target at attracting specific types of FDI that will be able to generate spillovers effects in the overall economy like investing in human capital, R&D activities, environmental issues, productive capacity, sectors with high income elasticity of demand.

FDI in China
Foreign direct investment in China is also know as Renminbi

Foreign Direct Investment.


China is the second largest receiver of Foreign Direct Investment. FDI INTO China fell by over one-third in 2009 due the global

financial crisis (global macroeconomic factors)


In 2012, China received more FDI than US ($59.1 billion and $57.4 billion, respectively).

China also has best infra structure in the world


The retail sales growth tick up to 14.2% in Sept compare to in Aug

Major success Starting from a baseline of $19billion just 20yrs ago FDI in china has grown to over $300b in the first 10 years. China has continued its massive growth and is the leader among all developing nations in terms of FDI India allows higher levels of foreign direct investment in most sectors as compared to China but the neighbouring country draws much more FDI. A striking feature of China's FDI regime is its focus on agriculture and basic raw materials. A number of bills and measures to improve Indias investment environment have been introduced in Parliament, but they are making little progress amidst lack of sufficient consensus for immediate reforms.

I am not against the idea of FDI as, foreign loans and FDI are two options through which a developing country can improve its economy. Due to lack of resources, development cannot take place. So, developing nations have to take loans or depend on FDI

BSP Chief MAYAWATI

Sushma Swaraj BJP

Bring FDI in POWER, in AIRLINES etc. We are not opposed to that. But we can sell our RICE & DAL. We dont need Wal-Mart to do it for us & Fight For The Poor Not For The Rich, Fight For The Country Not For Multinationals, Fight For Small Not Big

Foreign firms did not source the raw materials from Indian suppliers. Ask McDonald's about their Fries they never buy potatoes from local Indian farmers, saying the potatoes are too small here

LOKSABHA
In the LokSabha, the UPA needs 273 votes to cross the half-way mark The Centre may have succeeded in defeating the motion opposing foreign supermarkets in the Lok Sabha after a well-choreographed walk out by SP and BSP, but a similar exercise will not be enough to bail the government out in the Rajya Sabha

KAMAL NATH PARLIAMENTARY AFFAIRS MINISTER


If one House has passed it, it passes. It does not need both the Houses to pass it. Thats what is prescribed in the rules

Legal and constitutional experts, however, disagree with this view. According to them, a defeat for the government in the Upper House would mean a disapproval of the policy and a clear direction for its reconsideration

RAJYA SABHA
The UPA has 94 members in the 244member Upper House. The Opposition is claiming the support of at least 112 MPs. The government appeared poised to win the endorsement of Rajya Sabha for foreign direct investment (FDI) in retail as BSP Chief Mayawati announced that her party would back the government in the Upper House

While

KISHORE BIYANI, CEO, Future Group

there may be some issues in bringing FDI in India that the Opposition pointed out during the debate, one can't deny that retail will help in creating more jobs and a robust back-end infrastructure that the industry needs at present,

Walmart
Global retail giant Wal-Mart waiting for years to open its supermarkets in India has been lobbying with US lawmakers since 2008 to facilitate its entry into the Indian market. As per the lobbying disclosure reports filed by Wal-Mart with the US Senate, the company has spent close to $25 million (about . 125 crore) since 2008 on its various lobbying activities, including on the issues related to Enhanced Market Access For Investment In India. In the last quarter ended September 30, 2012, itself, the company spent $1.65 million (about . 10 crore) on various lobbying issues, which included discussions related to FDI in India.

Walmart
In the quarter, Wal-Mart lobbied for its case with the US Senate, the US House of Representatives, the US Trade Representative (USTR) and the US Department of State, as per its latest quarterly disclosure report. The companies are allowed to lobby for their cases in various departments and agencies in the US, but they are required to file their lobbying disclosure reports every quarter with the US Senate. So far in 2012, Wal-Mart has spent over $3 million (. 18 crore) on its various lobbying activities, including those related to India. As per Wal-Marts lobbying disclosure reports, the company has continuously lobbied for its India entry since 2008, except for a few quarters in 2009.

Walmart
BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad, alleged in the Rajya Sabha that fears were expressed earlier too about Walmart spending huge money to lobby for entering the Indian market. This has now been proved true. Walmart has in its lobbying disclosure report to the US Senate said it has spent $25m on lobbying and $3 million have been spent in 2012 itself for entering the Indian market. He alleged the report suggested that several palms were greased by the retail chain. Government should tell who was given this bribe. This raises a question mark on the implementation of FDI in retail, Prasad alleged.

What is lobbying
Originally, the word suggested someone who waited in the halls or lobbies to talk with legislators. To lobby means to influence or persuade public officials to

take a desired action, usually to pass (or defeat) legislation


Simply putting lobbying happens when an organization hires

someone to speak to politicians on its behalf


It is legal in US and Canada

FDI IN RETAIL- ADVANTAGES


Generates huge employment Increased investment in technology The huge tax revenue generated. The consumer gains from the wide variety of

choices and

a more diversified basket.

Future of FDI in Retail in India


The Indian retail market is estimated

to be worth about $500 billion


currently and is pegged to cross the $1-trillion mark by 2020, given the

rising personal income and growing


consumer spending trends. According to a report by global

consultancy major A T Kearney, the


organized retail is expected to reach 25% of the overall market by 2020.

How FDI will affect Indian economy


The government has also decided to liberalize the broadcast sector which will apply to segments like broadcast carriage services providers, including Direct-to-Home, Multi-Service Operators (MSOs) and Cable TV in order to bring uniformity in the segment. Till now, FDI for Cable TV and DTH were allowed up to 49%. News channels and FM radio will not be affected with the new reforms and will continue 26% FDI. The Indian economy will be affected by these reforms immensely. Allowing FDI of 51% stake for multi-brand retailers will be creating job opportunities in the location of their stores as well as in the procurement chain. The government has allowed liberalization of broadcast sector by 74 % FDI which will allow the broadcasting companies to expand much faster.

FUTURE PROSPECTS
Raising the level of investment Cheaper production facilities Availability of new technology Long term cash liquidity Healthy Competition will be boosted and there will be a check on the prices (inflation) Create transparency in the system Benefits to consumers Revenue to government Foreign reserves will increase. More development in infrastructure. Helps to the financially weak firm to survive {kingfishers airline}.

Future of FIIs in India


RBI

may ease norms for FII inflows to boost stagnant bonds market. RBI is also considering to allow repo facility for commercial papers and certificate of deposits. The finance minister predicts that with FII inflow and forex reserves the current account deficit should be contained at around 3% of the gross domestic product (GDP). Sustaining the growth momentum and achieving an annual average growth of 9-10 % in the next five years. Simplifying procedures and relaxing entry barriers for business activities and providing investor friendly laws and taxation system.

Future of FIIs in India


Boosting agricultural growth through diversification and development of agro processing industry. Developing world-class infrastructure for sustaining growth in all the sectors of the economy. It should develop infrastructure of India called ruthless efficiency and reduce bureaucracy by streamlining government procedures to make them more transparent and effective. Allowing foreign investment in more areas. Effecting fiscal consolidation and eliminating the revenue deficit through revenue enhancement and expenditure management.

Conclusion
FDI has provided better access to technologies for the local economy. FDI has lead to indirect productivity gains through spillovers. Multinational firms have increased the degree of competition in hostcountry markets which will force existing inefficient firms to invest more in physical or human capital. Service sector has been the most sought after sector in India for Foreign Direct Investments.

India, with its skilled labor and manpower has the potential to overtake China as the most preferred destination for Foreign Investments.
Hence measures must be taken in order to ensure that the flow of FDI in our country continues to grow.
