FEMA Masterclass (Gurgaon)

In the light of economic reforms and the liberalised business scenario in the country, the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) was introduced in India in 1999 which emerged as an investor friendly legislation. This act relaxed foreign exchange restrictions resulting in significant flow of investments into India over the years making it one of the most lucrative FDI destinations in the world. On the other hand Indian businesses have also been very aggressive in making investments overseas. Such rising inbound and outbound investments make it crucial to understand those regulations that govern such capital inflows and outflows. All transactions involving foreign exchange fall under preview of Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) read with FDI policy.
