Indian govt approves end to FDI cap in telecom sector

The Indian government has liberalised foreign direct investment (FDI) limits in a dozen sectors, including allowing 100 per cent foreign shareholdings in telecommunications companies.
In basic and mobile services, the Indian cabinet agreed to drop the current 74 per cent cap on foreign shareholdings. In future, up to 49 per cent of an Indian operator can be acquired directly by a foreign investor, while any higher shareholding must still receive approval from the Foreign Investment Promotion Board.
