Prime Minister Narendra Modi's right-wing government has sought to encourage foreign companies to invest in India since coming to power in 2014. Foreign investors, including foreign airlines, do not need prior approval for holding up to 49 percent in an Indian carrier.

The Cabinet also chose to allow 100 per cent FDI in construction development relating to building townships, housing, infrastructure and real estate broking services.

Essentially, this means that government approval is no longer required for FDI in single brand retail trading. "100 per cent FDI in single-brand retail through the automatic route will facilitate easy entry of MNCs in the retail trade and also violate the poll promise of the BJP".
