Overseas investors have poured in over Rs 14,000 crore in the Indian capital markets this month so far, taking total inflows to a staggering Rs 2.6 lakh crore this year, said the media report.
Moreover, foreign investors are pumping funds into debt in order to take advantage of the higher yields.
The net investment by overseas investors into the equity market has reached Rs 99,450 crore (USD 16.5 billion) so far this year, while in the debt markets it is at Rs 1.59 lakh crore ($26.2 billion), aggregating to Rs 2.6 lakh crore (USD 42.6 billion).

The cumulative figure for debt securities has also grown to Rs 2.63 lakh crore -- taking the total for overall Indian markets to Rs 10.5 lakh crore (over USD 213 billion).
