Executive Summary
Foreign Direct Investment has been one of the most relevant topics studied and researched in the recent part. If we see its origin in our country, it can be traced back to the arrival of East India Co., though after independence India as country, restrained itself from any foreign financial investment for most of the time till 1990. Due to various problems like decreasing export, balance of payment problem etc., Indian economy went for a major reform. It was liberalised and inclusion of private players and need of foreign investment and technology was considered as a major factor in economic growth. With this objective, India opened many sectors for foreign direct investment. Our scope of study consist retail and telecom sectors. Both these sectors have been important from many angles.

After that, in recent time both of these sectors have seen many obstacles like delay in policy formation in retail, taking back retail in multi brand retail, and telecom sector facing problem due to instability created due to scams and consequent actions. Still, foreign direct investment has been a major boost for these two sectors. It has transformed the whole industry.

In our analysis we have mainly focused on industrial details, major policies and factors favouring foreign direct investment, relevant statistical data and our view on current scenario and future of foreign investment in these two sectors.
