Workshop on FEMA reguations and Foreign Investments in Mumbai at Hotel Hilton 22nd May, 2015

Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) was introduced in India in 1999 which emerged as an investor friendly legislation. This act relaxed foreign exchange restrictions resulting in significant flow of investments into India over the years making it one of the most lucrative FDI destinations in the world. On the other hand Indian businesses have also been very aggressive in making investments overseas. Such rising inbound and outbound investments make it crucial to understand those regulations that govern such capital inflows and outflows. All transactions involving foreign exchange fall under preview of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) read with FDI policy. The new consolidated FDI Policy of 2014 has introduced certain significant changes and is expected to bring in more FDI equity inflows into India.
