conditions, Etc. of Investment

indirect Foreign Investment in Indian Companies.
4.1.1 Investment in Indian Companies Can Be Made Both By Non-resident as Well as Resident
indian Entities. Any Non-resident Investment in An Indian Company is Direct Foreign Investment.
investment By Resident Indian Entities Could Again Comprise of Both Resident and Non-resident
investment. Thus, such An Indian Company Would have Indirect Foreign Investment if the Indian
investing Company Has Foreign Investment in It. the Indirect Investment Can also Be a Cascading
investment I.e. Through Multi-layered Structure.
4.1.2 for the Purpose of Computation of Indirect Foreign Investment, Foreign Investment In
indian Company Shall Include all Types of Foreign Investments I.e. Fdi; Investment By

4.1.3 Guidelines for Calculation of Total Foreign Investment I.e. Direct and Indirect Foreign

(i) Counting the Direct Foreign Investment: all Investment Directly By a Non-resident
entity Into the Indian Company Would Be Counted Towards Foreign Investment.
(ii) Counting of Indirect Foreign Investment:

considered for Calculation of the Indirect Foreign Investment in Case of Indian
companies Which are owned and Controlled By Resident Indian Citizens And/or
indian Companies Which are Owned and Controlled By Resident Indian Citizens .
(b) for Cases Where Condition (a) Above is Not Satisfied or if the Investing Company Is
owned or Controlled By non Resident Entities, the Entire Investment By the Investing
company Into the Subject Indian Company Would Be Considered as Indirect Foreign
provided That, as An Exception, the Indirect Foreign Investment in Only the 100% Owned
subsidiaries of Operating-cum-investing/investing Companies, Will Be Limited to The
foreign Investment in the Operating-cum-investing/ Investing Company. this Exception Is
made Since the Downstream Investment of a 100% Owned Subsidiary of the Holding
company is Akin to Investment Made By the Holding Company and the Downstream
investment Should Be a Mirror Image of the Holding Company. this Exception, However,
is Strictly for Those Cases Where the Entire Capital of the Downstream Subsidy is Owned By
the Holding Company.
to Illustrate, if the Indirect Foreign Investment is Being Calculated for Company X Which
has Investment Through An Investing Company Y Having Foreign Investment, The
following Would Be the Method of Calculation:
(a) Where Company Y Has Foreign Investment Less Than 50%- Company X Would Not Be
taken as Having Any Indirect Foreign Investment Through Company Y.
(b) Where Company Y Has Foreign Investment of Say 75% And:
(i) Invests 26% in Company X, the Entire 26% Investment By Company Y Would Be
treated as Indirect Foreign Investment in Company X;
(ii) Invests 80% in Company X, the Indirect Foreign Investment in Company X Would
be Taken as 80%
(iii) Where Company X is a Wholly Owned Subsidiary of Company Y (i.e. Company Y
owns 100% Shares of Company X), Then Only 75% Would Be Treated as Indirect
foreign Equity and the Balance 25% Would Be Treated as Resident Held Equity. The
indirect Foreign Equity in Company X Would Be Computed in the Ratio of 75: 25 In
the Total Investment of Company Y in Company X.
(iii)the Total Foreign Investment Would Be the Sum Total of Direct and Indirect Foreign
(iv) the Above Methodology of Calculation Would Apply At Every Stage of Investment In
indian Companies and Thus to Each and Every Indian Company.

rights or of Creating Voting Rights Disproportionate to Shareholding or Any Incidental
matter Thereof, such Agreements Will have to Be Informed to the Approving Authority. The
approving Authority Will Consider such Inter-se Agreements for Determining Ownership
and Control When Considering the Case for Granting Approval for Foreign Investment.

investment Cap, Would Specifically Be Beneficially Owned By/held With/in the Hands Of
