FDI Reforms Take Effect

We had earlier
the key aspects of the FDI reforms proposed by the Government.
Unlike the previous occasion where the Government had to keep the FDI reforms
in the retail sector in suspended animation, this time it was quick to notify
the reforms that have now taken legal effect, as follows:
Note No. 4 (2012 series)
: FDI in single-brand product retail trading;
Note No. 5 (2012 series)
: FDI in multi-brand retail trading;
Note No. 6 (2012 series)
: FDI in the civil aviation sector;
Note No. 7 (2012 series)
: FDI in the broadcasting sector; and
Note No. 8 (2012 series)
: FDI in power exchanges.

These changes have taken into effect from September 20, 2012.
