Ideas, Interests and Institutional Changes

FDI in India

This article examines the pattern of foreign direct investment infl ows in India through three periods: (1) 1969-75, when the policy regime was "anti-FDI", (2) 1975-91, when promotion of FDI was "selective", and (3) after 1991, when the policy regime is "pro-FDI". It shows how the ideas and interests of different political groups have affected the institutional changes that have infl uenced FDI infl ows. It also suggests that competition between provincial states has positively contributed to the growth of FDI infl ows since the economic reforms of 1991.
