Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the changing patterns of OFDI from India over 1975-2001. It shows that the increasing number of Indian TNCs during 1990s has been accompanied by a number of changes in the character of such investment. These, notably include overwhelming tendency of Indian outward investors to have full or majority ownership, expansion into new industries and service sector, and the emergence of developed country as the most important host region for trans-border activity.
