Why India?

Robust Democracy!

India has the proud distinction of being the world’s largest and fastest growing free market democracy. A remarkable Constitution, well-developed democratic institutions and true participation by the people in social governance are the hallmarks of this democracy.  Faith in the democratic process is nurtured as well as protected by an independent judiciary, an alert and free media and active non-governmental organizations.
Over 5,000 dailies, 16,000 weeklies and 6,000 fortnightlies comprise India’s fiercely independent press.  A melting pot of cultures, India is home to people of all major faiths of the world.  Secularism is not only a way of life- it is a philosophy embedded in India’s history. Over a billion people live together- people, who speak 18 major languages, belong to various faiths and celebrate different festivals.

Robust Economy!

Today, India’s growing 400 million strong middle class is driving demand, competition and productivity like never before.  A diversified natural resource base, sound economic fundamentals and talented human resources make India an investment destination with an assured potential for attractive returns.  Fifteen years of reforms in India have accomplished a lot.   The amount of foreign direct investment coming into the country has grown from approximately $100 million in the early 1990s to approximately $10.5 billion today.
