New FDI norms will help revive construction and infrastructure

Apart from being a critical driver of economic growth, FDI has been a major financial resource for the economic development of India. The Indian government’s favourable policy regime and robust business environment have ensured that foreign capital keeps flowing into the country. The construction development and infrastructure activities sector received FDI inflows amounting to $25.78 billion and $17.22 billion, respectively, between April 2000 and September 2020.
