Government liberalises FII investment in commodity exchanges


Govt liberalises FII investment in commodity exchanges
The Government has liberalised FII investment in commodity exchanges aligning its policy with that of other infrastructure companies in the securities markets, such as stock exchanges, depositories and clearing corporations.

At present, foreign investment, within a composite (FDI & FII) cap of 49%, under the Government approval route-i.e. through the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB)-is permitted in commodity exchanges.


Within this overall limit of 49%, investment by Registered FIIs, under the Portfolio Investment Scheme (PIS) is limited to 23% and investment under the FDI Scheme is limited to 26%.

It has now been decided to liberalise the policy and to mandate the requirement of Government approval only for FDI component of the investment. Such investment by FIIs, in commodity exchanges, will, therefore, no longer require Government approval.
