"Focus India", "Make in India",
"Invest in India" are the much talked about words in
boardrooms across the world. India's continental market,
sustained high growth, large-scale capacity building, particularly
in the manufacturing and service sectors, addition of millions of
high net-worth individuals every year, propensity to absorb
investments, especially in the frontier areas of technology,
unprecedented blossoming of entrepreneurship, etc., are well known

India one of the most-happening business destinations in the
world. The thematic sequencing of the book is crafted in a
way so as to unravel the "India Advantage" factor to the
myriad business corporations, foreign investors, analysts and the
swelling ranks of entrepreneurs. A practical approach to
forming joint ventures, technology transfer, formation of
companies, intellectual property rights, investment opportunities
in important sectors, etc., has been adopted. The book also
dwells upon subjects like investment framework, governance
including corporate governance framework, trade and competition
policies, overview of various key enactments governing businesses,
issues concerning expatriates working in India, etc. It also

regulations vis-ŕ-vis the best global practices. This
has led to quick and progressive adjustments in the economic and
commercial laws of India. It is, therefore, important to keep
pace with the changing dynamics of the legal landscape.
The publication captures the changes taking place in the legal
and policy framework and the abounding business opportunities
emerging on account of progressive policy flexibility. Yet,
the book, in no way, seeks to substitute the expert advice and
guidance that must be sought on specific projects and issues that
an investor or entrepreneur may be confronted with. It serves
as a valuable guide to your "India strategy".
