Sector wise FDI inflows in Agriculture of India from 2013-14 to 2016-17

July 12, 2017

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) up to 100 percent is permitted under automatic route in specified activities of the agriculture and allied sectors. Further, 100 percent FDI is also allowed under automatic route in the plantation sector namely tea, coffee, rubber, cardamom, palm oil tree and olive oil tree.

Most of the people of our country, India depend upon Agriculture sector. So there is no proposal to include other agriculture areas under FDI policy to safeguard the interests of poor farmers of our country for whom agriculture is mainstay of livelihood.

During the last 4 years during 2013-14 to 2016-17 (till September 2016), there was FDI inflow of US $ 250.48 million in Agriculture of India.
