The consolidated FDI policy document is a single reference point for investors and regulators. The first such consolidation was released in March, 2010 after which it has been updated every six months. This ˜Circular 1 of 2012™-is the fifth edition of the consolidated policy document.
In view of the fact that Government has undertaken substantial rationalization/ liberalization of the FDI policy, it is felt that the need for frequent amendments to the Circular does not exist any longer. Further, any changes made in the FDI policy are notified through Press Notes issued during the year. It has, therefore, been decided that the Consolidated Circular on FDI Policy, which was, until now, being released on a six-monthly basis, may, henceforth, be issued after one year. As such, the next version of the Consolidated Circular on FDI Policy, would be released on 29.3.2013.
