चीन समेत पड़ोसी देशों से आने वाले सभी एफडीआई के लिए सरकारी मंजूरी जरूरी

डीपीआईआईटी ने बताया, भारत के साथ जमीनी सीमा साझा करने वाले देशों के निकाय अब यहां सिर्फ सरकार की मंजूरी के बाद ही निवेश कर सकते हैं। भारत में होने वाले किसी निवेश के लाभार्थी भी यदि इन देशों से होंगे या इन देशों के नागरिक होंगे, तो ऐसे निवेश के लिए भी सरकारी मंजूरी लेने की आवश्यकता होगी।
