Background

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has notified the SEBI (Foreign Portfolio Investors) Regulations, 2019 (New FPI Regulations) on 23 September 2019, repealing the SEBI (Foreign Portfolio Investors) Regulations, 2014 (2014 FPI Regulations).

The New FPI Regulations have been issued pursuant to a public consultation based on the report (Committee Report) of the working group constituted by SEBI on 26 March 2018, under the Chairmanship of Mr. H.R. Khan (Committee).

Based on feedback received from stakeholders in the industry, the New FPI Regulations seek to simplify FPI investments into India, towards giving a much-needed boost to FPI participation in the market which has seen a significant drop in recent times.
