In the wake of growing tensions between India & China, India amended its FDI Policy to restrict investments from neighboring countries. Recently, it also released a press note banning 59 Chinese applications, with reports suggesting that the government is mulling a ban on other applications operating as ‘clones’ of these 59 applications. INDUSLAW’s Avimukt Dar, Tanu Banerjee, Ishan Johri, and Garima Kedia analyze these measures in light of India’s international treaty obligations and discuss the need for a well-defined policy to modulate India’s relations with China.
