100% FDI In Most Sectors Lures Small Entrepreneurs And Startup Companies: Maximum Limit Set To $3 Million Every Year

India as a step to boost business startups in India with foreign funds, the government has eased the procedures now. Popularly termed as FDI (Foreign Direct Investment), has many obligations to invest in India. As per the latest relaxations, nearly $3 Million every year can be fed from abroad investors and lenders for startup companies.

In Union Budget 2016, the FDI in startup companies was a major issue. After months later, the central government has opened the gates for relaxations in a cautious manner. Both B2B and B2C will get a benefit of Rs.20 crore from foreign investors. Technically this is termed as “External Commercial Borrowings (ECB)”. The fund can give either in foreign currency or the Indian currency.

In 2016, March, the center has allowed 100% investment in online B2B (Business to Business) market businesses. But Business to Consumer (B2C) not included in that decision. The latest decision is a step towards B2C FDI.

The government of India has taken precautionary measures to define as what exactly a “Startup company means.” Such definitions will lead to eradicating the misutilization of FDI concept. This is a primary step because the 30% tax imposition has uncapped for the investments that were laid earlier on such foreign capitals.
