In the previous fiscal year (April 2014 to March 2015) the level of outward foreign direct investments (FDI) by Indian firms witnessed some moderation. The gross outflow of FDI from India in FY 2014-15 stood at US $8.5 billion as per data released by the Reserve Bank of India. At March-end 2015, the kumulative stock of FDI from India stood at US $130.5 billion, which was only slightly higher from US $128.7 at the end of FY 2013-14. One reason for this can be seen in the massive repatriation/disinvestment by Indian firms in the overseas totalling US $6.7 billion in FY 2014-15. Nevertheless, the overall stock of India’s outward FDI has grown tremendously from being practically non-existent in 1991 to the current level.
