Overseas Direct Investments: RBI issues clarifications
The Reserve Bank of India today issued certain clarifications with respect to the applicability of the revised guidelines in respect of overseas direct investment notified on August 14, 2013 to facilitate genuine outward investment requirements of Indian companies.

Among others, it has been clarified that in respect of funding of overseas direct investments by way of External Commercial Borrowings, instead of limit of 100 per cent of the net worth, the earlier limit of 400 per cent of the net worth will continue to apply.

It may be noted that Reserve Bank of India had announced the revised guidelines for overseas direct investment by Indian parties on August 14, 2013. This measure had been taken in the context of current macro-economic situation.

"It was not the intention of the Reserve Bank of India to restrict bona-fide and genuine overseas direct investment transactions by Indian companies," the RBI has stated in a release.
