India is a beautiful, colourful country with a rich history and diverse heritage. Comprising 28 states and eight union territories, this federal union has a distinctive geographic and cultural identity.
But it’s not just its dramatic landscapes, iconic cuisine and world-renowned entertainment industry that brings people to this country. India has made unprecedented socio-economic progress since gaining independence in 1947, and with this progress has come a spike in interest from international companies and investors.
According to data released by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), India reported its highest ever foreign direct investment (FDI) inflow in the 2021–2022 financial year, endorsing its status amongst global investors. The United Kingdom is one of these investors, contributing USD 31,901.56 billion (GBP 26,209.36 billion, INR 2,519,641.04 billion) to India’s economy between April 2000 and March 2022.
