The decision to further liberalise FDI regime with the objective of "providing major impetus to employment and job creation in India" was taken at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Key reform decisions were taken at a high level meeting chaired by the PM, which makes India the most open economy in the world for FDI.

This is the second major reform in the FDI space. The Centre in last November had significantly relaxed the foreign investment regime. 

"With these changes, India is now the most open economy in the world for FDI," said a commerce ministry statement.
