As India begins its second generation reforms and further opens up its economy and integrates it with the rest of the world, it has changed and overhauled many of its laws and regulations.
For any foreign investor planning to invest in India either in partnership with an existing Indian corporation or business or on its own, it is important to be aware of and have the information of the legal and regulatory framework that will govern its entry into India and how it will be governed while doing business in India. This book broadly covers almost all the legal and regulatory aspects that a foreign investor expects to face in its journey into India and its stay here.
The book has been divided into eighteen chapters and covers the legal and regulatory aspects of the following: An overview of India, entry strategies and foreign investment regulations, a note on responsible business, reputation risk management, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, debt financing, corporate governance, labour and employment, intellectual property, competition and unfair trade practices, infrastructure, direct taxation, indirect taxation including a note on the proposed unified goods and services tax which will subsume all current indirect taxes and levies, arbitration, environment, cyber framework and a final chapter on India as the choice to do business in. All these chapters have been authored by experts in their respective fields and they are managing partners, partners or heads of divisions in their respective firms and organisations based out of India and abroad.
